The Peninsula Breast Center will resume screening mammography starting Wednesday, May 13. Previously, the center had only been performing diagnostic mammography due to the temporary COVID-19-related shutdown, but will be happy to help in preventive care once more.
However, there are a few changes in patient flow to help maintain the safest care environment possible in compliance with measures of the Maryland Department of Health. For example, all patients will wait in their vehicle, rather than the waiting room, until called to assist in social distancing. At least one week’s supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) for providers, staff and as appropriate for patients are available. Workplace infection control measures in accordance with the most current CDC guidelines are being followed.
The Peninsula Breast Center provides women the most comprehensive breast health services on Delmarva with care plans individualized for each woman. The warm and caring staff offers 3D mammography, biopsies, physician consultations and surgical services all in a single location. It is located at 804 Snow Hill Road in Salisbury. To schedule a screening, call at 410-543-7599.
