Smith Family Breast Health Center Celebrates 5 Year Anniversary

Posted: Updated:

After five years of serving northern Michigan, the Smith Family Breast Health Center is celebrating a monumental anniversary.

The center, operated by Munson, opened five years ago today in Traverse City.

It provides state of the art mammogram technology for patients.

Doctors can now diagnose breast cancer at the facility in less than seven days. That is half the time it took before the facility opened.

The center has found cancer and provided treatment for more than six hundred people since it opened.

Doctors say women should start getting yearly mammograms from age 40 and earlier if you are at higher risk.
