The Clark Comprehensive Breast Center at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health is now seeing patients at its newly expanded location, 10 Martin Court in Easton. Named in recognition of a $5 million gift from The Clark Charitable Foundation, a private philanthropic organization funded by the A. James Clark Family, the Center’s expansion was part of a $6.5 million renovation project at UM Shore Regional Health’s Diagnostic and Imaging Center, housed at that same location.  

The 14-month project, which began in February, 2015, was completed in three phases and in addition to the expansion of the Breast Center to its new location, encompassed all laboratory and imaging spaces.

Under the leadership of medical director, Roberta J. Lilly, MD, MPH, FACS, the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center provides a variety of breast health services including diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant breast disease.  Other services available include support groups, telemedicine genetic counseling services, the Wellness for Women program, a breast screening program that promotes early detection of breast cancer, and a Women’s Health Boutique for post-mastectomy garments, prosthetics and swim wear.

The Diagnostic and Imaging Center offers laboratory and imaging technologies including phlebotomy; digital mammography with Tomosynthesis (3D); bone density screening; ultrasound; MRI, PET and 64-slice CT scanning; X-ray; fluoroscopy; EKG and Cardiac CT Scoring. Diagnostic services are available Monday thru Friday, from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon for lab work, routine x-ray and digital screening mammography.  

“Our organization strives to maintain the health and well-being of the members of our community through enhanced outpatient services such as preventive care, health education, access to physicians and a variety of other programs and medical specialties,” comments Ken Kozel, president and CEO of UM Shore Regional Health.  “To achieve improved health and wellness in our communities, our goal is to provide leading-edge, accessible health care services.”

Kozel continues, “Thanks to the generosity of The Clark Charitable Foundation, women throughout the five-county region will have greater access to state-of-the-art diagnostics and exceptional care offered by an expert breast health team – in one location – improving the patient experience, patient outcomes and ultimately saving lives.”
