The Jewish Hospital - Mercy Health Offers Peace of Mind with Breast Biopsy Results within 24 Hours

Mercy Health – Cincinnati, which provides advanced, compassionate, quality care in your neighborhood through its care network, announces the launch of the I Know program, offered at The Jewish Hospital, which eliminates the anxiety that comes from waiting for breast biopsy results by providing them within 24 hours.

 

The I Know 24-hour notification program is available to patients having their biopsies at The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health Women’s Center and patients enroll when they schedule their breast biopsy or arrive for their appointment. A patient will get results no later than the next business day when her biopsy is performed before 2 p.m.

 

“A worrying test result can cause tremendous stress and anxiety. We designed Mercy Health’s I Know program so patients know exactly how soon they will receive their biopsy results. The quick turnaround can help patients spend less time worrying and take control of their health immediately,” said Pat Davis-Hagens, Mercy Health Central Market President and CEO.

 

“If you do have cancer, Mercy Health is with you every step of the way, providing you comprehensive care from our breast health team, which includes Fellowship-trained breast surgeons and specially-trained nurse navigators who serve as your continuous point of contact throughout your entire course of treatment,” adds Davis-Hagens.

 

The Jewish Hospital — Mercy Health Women’s Center is located at 4700 E Galbraith Road, Suite 100, Cincinnati, OH 45236. For more information on the I Know program, please visit mercy.com/IKnow or call 513-686-3300.

 

The American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. Screening mammograms are usually a covered benefit with most insurance carriers and Mercy Health offers mammograms conveniently in 15 minutes or less.

Expert radiologists read all mammograms and because a second look can mean a second chance, we double-check all mammograms with the R2 ImageChecker, a computer-aided detection system that detects 23.4 percent more breast cancer than mammography alone. You and your physician receive a copy of the results.
