St. Luke’s Breast Center Expands Hours
St. Luke’s Breast Center is making care more convenient for patients by expanding its hours.
St. Luke’s Breast Center will now be open later on Mondays and earlier on Thursdays. Plus, starting this fall it will be open on Saturdays. This change is also happening to increase safety measures for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have increased the amount of time allowed for each patient so that we can do extra cleaning in between each one to ensure they are safe,” St. Luke’s Breast Radiologist Dr. Kerri Harting explained. “I also understand that people are concerned about coming to the hospital at this time, but I would like to assure you that here at St. Luke’s Breast Center we are doing everything in our power to keep all of our patients and staff healthy and safe. It’s important that you not put off your mammograms because they do save lives.”
Other safety measures St. Luke’s Breast Center has adopted include having everyone wear a face mask, having staff also wear face shields, and getting patients dressed and undressed in the same space they will be having their mammograms.
New St. Luke’s Breast Center hours are as follows:
Mondays, 7:45 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Tuesdays, 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
Wednesdays, 7:45 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Thursdays, 7 a.m.– 4:30 p.m.
Fridays, 7:45 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
Saturday hours will begin this fall.
