Mercy Medical Center has opened a private onsite store, operated by A Personal Touch Boutique, to augment the array of services provided to breast-cancer patients. The boutique carries a wide range of specially made products for those coping with breast cancer and is devoted to helping patients feel and look their best. The boutique offers prostheses, specialty garments, wigs, scarves, hats, swimwear, and more. Also, the shop works with insurance companies for reimbursement.
Mercy’s department of radiology and imaging has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. Mercy also earned the 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. In addition, to assist those who are newly diagnosed, living with, or survivors of cancer, Mercy has partnered with the American Cancer Society on its Patient Navigation Program. This gives patients and their families guidance, free of charge, in accessing available support services and resources.
