Ohana Mammography Center in Yakima Receives Top Recognition

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, WA.-- Ohana Mammography Center in Yakima receives top recognition as a "Breast Imaging Center of Excellence."
 
The Director of Ohana, Nancy Roehr, said they were accredited for their high-end technology and well-trained staff. Ohana is the only breast imaging center in Central Washington to earn this title.
 
"The community can be confident that they're going to get the best care," Roehr said. "They don't need to travel anywhere else. They can get it right here in Yakima."
 
Roehr said even with this latest accomplishment, they're seeing less traffic. She said people are coming less regularly because of the economy, and staffers are starting to notice a rise in bigger and later stage cancers.
