For years, Terry McMurtrey put off her mammogram because she had no family history of breast cancer. She waited six years between mammograms. Then the day before her mammogram at Clovis Community Medical Center’s Marjorie E. Radin Breast Care Center, she felt something in her left breast.
No time to waste
The mammogram confirmed that something was amiss in her left breast. McMurtrey soon followed the mammogram with a breast ultrasound to get a more complete look and then a biopsy at the Radin Breast Care Center.
Clovis Community Medical Center’s successful participation in a state pilot program with six hospitals has resulted in a new California law that now allows hospitals to become certified to perform certain elective, non-emergency cardiac catheterizations without having open heart surgery programs on site. For many patients that means avoiding significant travel for medical treatment while providing continuity of care with their local physicians.
