St. Joseph’s Health Centre is a designated site for the Ontario Breast Screening Program. This means that women between the ages of 50 – 74 can call us directly at 416-530-6169 ext. 7 to book mammograms without any referrals. This process is entirely self-referred, and guarantees our patients a mammogram appointment within seven business days.
Women between the ages of 50 – 74 are at the highest risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer. Our Ontario Breast Screening Program designation is helping women in this age group get screened faster and detect breast cancer earlier.
Women outside of this age group can also have their mammogram performed at St. Joseph’s. The only difference is that this would require a physician referral.
If a patient’s mammogram reveals an abnormality, the treatment is also offered at St. Joseph’s which ensures a smooth continuum of care – all in one place.
