On April 13, Cambridge Memorial Hospital was successfully on-boarded as a third formal OBSP Breast Assessment Site, joining the region’s diagnostic breast pathway. Our hard working staff and physicians have been providing screening services for years as part of the Ontario Breast Screening Program, and are now getting the recognition they deserve as an accredited assessment site.
This is fantastic news for our Regional Cancer Program as this addition increases access to care. Primary Care Providers now have more options and can confidently refer diagnostic breast cases to these accredited sites. This is also an opportunity for us to assess site capacity and strategize ways to increase volumes and decrease wait times. More access, means better care and better opportunities!
