American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center

The Lincoln Breast Center is comprised of a multidisciplinary team committed to raising awareness, providing education, diagnosing, and treating breast diseases. The Breast Center was accredited by the NAPBC in 2009 and reaccredited in 2012 and 2015. The community served by Lincoln Hospital is predominately Hispanic and African American. It is well documented that Hispanic and African American Women have a mistrust of the healthcare system that precludes them from seeking care. Providing quality breast healthcare to this diverse patient population requires navigation through what is a complex set of social, economic, and cultural barriers. Patient care is provided in a culturally sensitive way that involves the input of the entire team. The Lincoln Breast Center continues to integrate current evidence based practices into the care of patients who may feel marginalized and to provide a high level of care in a multidisciplinary setting. The Lincoln Breast Center continues to evolve.
