Ella Health mammo techWe are very pleased to announce that we’ve opened a new center in the growing community of Hagerstown, MD.

The Hub City at the heart of Washington County is the largest in Western Maryland is known for its Civil War sights, outdoor recreation and cultural venues.

We will be providing 3D mammography for both breast cancer screening and diagnostic exams at 1165 Imperial Drive., Hagerstown, MA. The new center is in the same building as Capital Women’s Care.

“We are bringing to Hagerstown, the most mammography advanced technology to help women protect and maintain their health,” said Ella Health Chief Executive Joe Shikorsky. “We are looking forward to being a part of the community and ensuring that women have a high quality of care in a setting where they can feel welcome and pampered.”

3D mammograms increase the detection of invasive breast cancer by 41 percent while reducing unnecessary callbacks for additional testing. The system works by taking multiple ages during the exam, which are then compiled into a reconstruction of the breast providing an enhanced view.

Ella Health mammograms are read by board certified, fellowship trained radiologists who specialize in women’s health. Results are delivered quickly, generally within one business day.

In addition to offering the latest technology, Ella Health provides a convenient and comfortable experience. Appointments can be made online and with short notice, sometimes on the same day. The center features a relaxing atmosphere with warm cloth robes, private dressing rooms, soft music and tea and coffee in the waiting room.

“We are excited that our patients will have easier access to this advanced mammogram,” said Mitesh Kothari, M.D., of Capital Women’s Care. “This is the most accurate breast cancer screening test available and it is important that women have as much information as possible about their health so they can make good decisions. This will help us to detect breast cancer when it’s most treatable and avoid the anxiety that can come with unnecessary additional testing.”
