`Ohana Mammography Center

`Ohana, Virginia Mason Memorial Hospital’s Mammography Center, offers a supportive and caring environment along with the most advanced digital technology available.

Early detection remains a woman’s best defense in the battle against breast cancer. Like all cancers, breast cancer develops when abnormal cells in the body change and grow out of control. When problematic breast tissue cells are diagnosed early, the prognosis for cure is extremely high. Although mammography services are the foundation of `Ohana, additional diagnostic and support services are offered in the same beautiful facility. `Ohana offers a communication linkage for women to access doctors, diagnosticians, counselors and other health professionals. `Ohana is located at 1515 W.
