Einstein Healthcare Network and Solis Mammography “Go Live”April 19, 2018< Back To News
THE FIRST THREE JOINTLY-MANAGED MAMMOGRAPHY CENTERS OPEN IN THE PHILADELPHIA REGION.
April 18, 2018 – Three mammography centers jointly managed by Einstein Healthcare Network and Solis Mammography are up and running at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery’s Women’s Center in East Norriton; at the Einstein Healthcare Network King of Prussia Outpatient Care Center; and at the Marion-Louise Saltzman Women’s Center at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
“We are delighted to have reached this phase in our partnership with Solis Mammography, which combines the best of Einstein’s clinical excellence with Solis’ signature patient-centric services and focus on preventative care,” says Beth Duffy, chief operating officer for Einstein Medical Center Montgomery.
Last fall, a joint venture partnership was announced with Einstein Healthcare Network and Solis Mammography, the nation’s largest independent network of dedicated mammography centers, in order to expand and enhance mammography centers in the Philadelphia region.
Einstein’s skilled technologists and radiologists will continue to provide patient care at these locations. Throughout 2018, Solis Mammography will be phasing in patient experience enhancements to take the stress and anxiety out of the traditional mammogram experience.
“Our newly renovated Solis Mammography centers will offer a full range of services, all in an environment uniquely designed to promote patient relaxation and peace of mind,” says Ted Bucknam, chief operating officer for Solis Mammography. “Our research-based brand promise is centered on comfort, convenience and ease, so that women are more likely to prioritize scheduling annual screening mammography to promote and preserve breast health.”
“Joining forces with Solis Mammography makes sense as both our organizations are national leaders in breast health and imaging and together we’ll be able to reach many more women throughout the region,” says Ruth Lefton, chief operating officer for Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia.
Additional Solis/Einstein locations are planned for later this year in Philadelphia and Montgomery County.
Einstein stands at the forefront in diagnostic imaging for early detection of breast cancer, having conducted research that helped advance the use of three-dimensional mammography (digital breast tomosynthesis), which has become the standard diagnostic method in use today, as well as pioneering the use of other diagnostic technologies. Solis Mammography is known for providing an exceptional patient experience making it easier and more convenient for women to get their annual mammogram. At every step, dedication to the patient experience is treated with the same respect and priority as is clinical accuracy.
