Palos Community Hospital’s Breast Care & Women’s Health Center offers Full Continuum of Care

Palos Community Hospital continues its commitment to women’s health with the opening of the Breast Care & Women’s Health Center, offering comprehensive services from early diagnosis to long-term recovery in one convenient location.

The new center, located at 17333 S. LaGrange Road in Tinley Park, features advanced digital mammography for more accurate breast cancer diagnosis and DEXA scan for diagnosing osteoporosis. For patients needing additional imaging, the Women’s Center has ultrasound and breast biopsy capability.
