Upstate Breast Care Center opens at Community Campus

SYRACUSE, N.Y.— Breast care services are now available at Upstate University Hospital’s Community Campus with the opening this week of the new Upstate Breast Care Center, located at 4900 Broad Road in Syracuse.

Unique to this region, the new center offers two critically important services for breast health under one roof: diagnostic imaging and breast surgery.

Imaging on the Community Campus has been provided by the Wellspring Breast Care Center for years, and now that expertise has teamed up with two breast surgeons new to the medical staff of Upstate University Hospital. Drs. Mary Ellen Greco and Kristine Keeney began practicing breast surgery at the Community Campus in November.

With these resources now available at Upstate University Hospital’s Community Campus, breast health has never been easier, more convenient or comprehensive. The addition of Dr. Greco and Dr. Keeney’s breast surgery office, located adjacent to Wellspring, launches a continuum of patient care unavailable elsewhere. The Breast Care Center on the Community Campus can be reached at 492-5660.

The opening of the Upstate Breast Care Center strengthens and expands Upstate’s multidisciplinary team of breast care specialists. While both Dr. Greco and Dr. Keeney are new to the Upstate family, each is a board-certified, fellowship-trained physician and has been well established in the Syracuse community for more than a decade. They will work to treat a wide range of breast conditions, including cancer, as well as offer genetic testing.

“Women’s breast health has always been a pillar of the care we provide at the Community Campus,” said Meredith Price, chief administrative officer of Upstate University Hospital’s Community Campus. “The addition of these two highly trained breast surgeons makes our complement of breast care that much more comprehensive and easily accessible for patients.”

The new Upstate Breast Care Center office, located in the physician’s office building south, features four exam rooms, in addition to one room with ultrasound capabilities, which allows the physicians to perform certain procedures in-house. A nurse navigator is also available to patients who will assist them throughout their breast health experience.

Wellspring Breast Care Center is accredited by the American College of Radiology and is fully staffed with mammography-certified technologists and radiologists, as well as dedicated registered nurses. Its extensive range of breast-centered health care includes routine screening and diagnostic mammograms, diagnostic breast ultrasound, digital mammography, and ultrasound guided biopsies.

Comprehensive breast care services are also available at Upstate’s Downtown Campus Breast Care Center, located at 550 Harrison St. Syracuse.
