Wellmont Health System offers patients in the Tri-Cities region of Northeast Tennessee and Southwest Virginia two fully accredited centers for breast health at Holston Valley Medical Center and Bristol Regional Medical Center. Wellmont's breast centers are the only ones in Northeast Tennessee accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a non-governmental and not-for-profit organization established to acknowledge breast centers providing quality care.
Accreditation helps ensure exceptional breast care for patients by distinguished breast experts. Wellmont’s fully accredited breast centers offer a wide range of breast health services provided by exceptional breast cancer physicians and caregivers, including oncology breast navigators dedicated to working with patients and their families through the journey of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Wellmont’s centers meet and exceed the quality standards established by NAPBC, assuring patients the highest quality of breast care available anywhere in the Tri-Cities region.
Wellmont’s oncology breast navigators are skilled oncology nurse specialists who work with patients and their families from the point of diagnosis through treatment and recovery. Oncology breast navigators offer one-on-one education, guidance and compassion and are invaluable resources for helping patients find their way through the often complex process of visits, treatments and questions. Oncology breast navigators are trained to provide special guidance and serve as physician liaisons, allowing oncology physicians and nurses to concentrate on treatments and physical healing.
