Good Samaritan Medical Center Receives the 2022 Women’s Choice Award® as one of America’s Best Mammogram Imaging Centers
Brockton, MA – Good Samaritan Medical Center has been named one of America’s Best Mammogram Imaging Centers by the Women’s Choice Award®, a trusted referral source for the best in healthcare.
According to the American Cancer Society, about 1 in 8 women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime, and it is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
“As a breast cancer survivor, I learned the hard way that where you choose to have your mammogram can have a profound impact on your outcome and experience,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award.
Passi was the victim of poor imaging and misdiagnosis. Doctors eventually discovered her breast cancer after a surgical biopsy and two lumpectomies at the age of 42. Her experience was the inspiration behind creating the Women’s Choice Award following her career as former publisher of Working Woman and Working Mother magazines.
“Knowing where to go for the best mammogram will reduce your risk of a false positive or the possibility of missing cancers,” said Passi. “By letting women know which imaging centers in their area are among America’s best for mammograms, we are able to reduce risk by helping them make better decisions and smarter health care choices.”
The list of 1,628 award winners, including Good Samaritan Medical Center represents imaging centers that carry the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) seal from the American College of Radiology and are accredited for Mammograms (MAP).
“We are honored to be named one of the Best Mammogram Centers by Women’s Choice. This award recognizes the highly skilled and compassionate care that our Women’s Imaging Center team has provided for our community,” said Matthew Hesketh, President Good Samaritan Medical Center. “As a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, our Women’s Imaging Center has a longstanding commitment to providing the highest quality care. The Women’s Choice Award also spotlights the team’s dedication to the patient experience.”
