Breast Health Services at The Magee-Womens Specialty Center

Breast Health Services at The Magee-Womens Specialty Center
The Magee-Womens Specialty Center at UPMC Altoona offers comprehensive breast health services. Our patients include women in different phases of life and health. Some are seeking a breast health doctor for routine care, and some have received a cancer diagnosis and need specialized care.

Our Center's dedicated team of doctors and nurse navigators guide people with breast cancer through the care process. Our breast cancer nurse navigators coordinate appointments and consultations. They can also help people who don't have health insurance apply for a voucher program to cover treatment costs or receive free mammograms.

Our radiologists are on-site and trained in breast imaging. This means you can receive your mammogram results before you leave the office.
