The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center
The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center
is an integral part of the Comprehensive Breast Care Program. Proper diagnosis is paramount in the treatment planning for patients diagnosed with breast cancer.
The Betty Puskar Breast Care Center is dedicated to improving the breast health of the women of West Virginia. This goal is accomplished by the following aims:

  • Reduce the number of breast cancer diagnoses throughout West Virginia by an active program of educational outreach. This program is aimed at educating women about the prevention and early detection of breast cancer.

  • Obtain the most accurate screening and diagnostic results to properly diagnose and support women with cancer.

  • Provide treatment and work to cure cancer with minimal impact on a woman's body.

These aims allow women to have access to a comprehensive, all in-one breast care program that provides expert care, educational tools, and technology all aimed at the prevention, early detection, and treatment of breast cancer. In addition, the Center provides care in a warm, compassionate environment that is sensitive to a woman's own unique needs.

The Center also provides a wealth of breast cancer information in the forms of seminars, genetic counseling, nutritional information, and one-on-one education. Patients also have access to the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center Hamilton Library, a unique resource center that now has an American Cancer Society volunteer present to help patients navigate information as well as point them toward useful community programs.

The Center is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and is federally certified by the FDA under the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) to provide quality breast imaging.

The West Virginia University Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center is one of the country's premier cancer treatment centers. Multidisciplinary medical teams use the latest cancer drugs, sophisticated technologies, and patient driven research to deliver the best possible treatment to treat your cancer in a state-of-the-art facility owned and operated by WVU Hospitals.
