Breast Health in Jackson Hole

St. John’s Health takes a comprehensive approach to women’s health issues, including breast health. From prevention and screening to treatment and survivorship, St. John’s Health is here for you. We offer a variety of health care options to detect, treat, and help patients beat breast cancer.

Diagnostic Imaging

Following American Cancer Society guidelines, St. John’s Health recommends a yearly mammogram for all women, starting at age 40. St. John’s Health is certified by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the only hospital in the region to earn this distinction.

  • Our board-certified radiologists provide comprehensive breast services, integrating 3-D computer-aided mammography and ultrasound for the highest quality care
  • You will experience a cushioning system for a softer mammogram
  • We offer ultrasound, stereotactic, and MRI-guided breast biopsies, as well as sentinel node mapping

Getting your screening at St. John’s Health assures that you are receiving the highest quality service and imaging.
