Breast Cancer Outreach Program

Lewis County General Hospital has taken the opportunity to increase education, support and awareness of breast cancer in our community by developing a team of professionals to offer this educational program. It was important to develop this program from an awareness preventative aspect, and also to help you understand what to do if you or a loved one is diagnosed with breast cancer.

Goals:

To provide access to services that are needed to maintain wellness.

To coordinate and enhance the care of diagnosed individuals at their own comfort level.

Our goals will be achieved through recognizing the worth and dignity of all seeking education.
