Beverly Hospital's Breast Health Center provides comprehensive breast health services in the Boston area on the North Shore. At our Center, you will find the same high-quality care, latest technology and experienced staff found at major academic teaching hospitals. In fact, we work in partnership with the breast health specialists of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Boston hospital, to enhance our scope of services even more. Comprehensive Breast Health Center services are available at Lahey Outpatient Center, Danvers. Screening and diagnostic mammograms are also available at Addison Gilbert Hospital in Gloucester, and screening mammograms are available at the Women's Health Center at Beverly Hospital in Beverly.

"It was a horrible day for me, but the people (at the Breast Health Center) made that day easier. … I was very alone in this situation, and I did not feel alone because of this group. I wanted to express my gratitude to your staff and make sure you know how lucky you are to have them. They made a HUGE difference for me."
