Current Project:
Kearney Breast Center


Dear Community Members,
 
Look how far we’ve come! It’s all THANKS TO YOU!
 
To date, our community has raised $2.1 million for the new Kearney Breast Center at PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center.
 
While we celebrate our success, we still have work to do as we have not met our $2.3 million goal to centralize and improve our Breast Center. With this money, we will completely transform our Breast Center - bringing in state of the art imaging technology and physically creating an environment where structure matches function. 
 
Washington State has the highest incidence of Breast Cancer in the U.S.A.  Cowlitz County is the 3rd highest county in the State.  Breast Cancer is a disease that affects ALL of us.  We are proud of the vital services we provide to women of our community. The dedicated staff and physicians as well as the uncompromised focus on quality outcomes are the backbone of our breast center. Enhancing our services through improved access points, patient privacy, soothing therapeutically enhanced aesthetics would complete the ideal patient experience for this deserving group of patients.

 

This is the final chapter in the story of an investment. It is an investment in which we hope you will join us in making. Together, we will transform our Breast Center into a beautiful, welcoming center of technological excellence - serving the needs of our community now and in the future.
