The Advocate BroMenn Women's Center was created to offer services that are important to all women in a supportive, caring environment. We paid special attention to privacy and comfort when designing our center, and hope that you will feel good about coming to BroMenn for your prevention needs and healthcare concerns.
The Women's Center imaging technology includes: DEXA bone densitometry equipment; a state-of-the-art 3D mammography system; and an advanced, sensitive ultrasound system. You can have confidence in the results of your visit. Mammograms and bone density screenings are also available at the Advocate BroMenn Outpatient Center, 3024 E. Empire St. on Bloomington's east side. No physician referral is necessary for an annual screening mammogram, and same-day appointments are usually available. Every scan is read by board-certified radiologists with special training in breast cancer diagnostics. For an mammogram appointment at either the hospital or outpatient center location, please call 855.456.JOURNEY. For bone density testing, please call 309.268.2662.
Advocate BroMenn Medical Center also offers breast MRI for situations when mammogram results may warrant closer examination. An MRI uses magnets and radiowaves connected to a computer to make many detailed pictures of the breast. Breast MRI enables physicians to visualize not only cancer in the breast but the effect it has on the surrounding anatomy.
The Women's Center sponsors many fun and educational classes and community events such as Dessert With The Doctor, the Joyful Journey seminar, Women Taking Care luncheons, and more. We also participate in other events such as health fairs and seminars to help reach women where they live and work.
By partnering with community groups, we offer classes and community events throughout the community. We can also draw upon the expertise of those from other organizations to bring you the best information available.
Women make most of the healthcare decisions for themselves and for their families. We want to provide you with the resources to make informed decisions about the healthcare topics that concern you.
The Women's Center's Healthy Outlook for Women newsletter is published quarterly and features informative articles about health concerns common to women and their families. The newsletter also list upcoming BroMenn events that may be of interest. Read the latest issue online, or call 309.268.2661 to be added to the mailing list.
Women who are struggling with infertility can join The Hannah Group, a group support experience with women who can provide a listening ear, understanding and personal information about the challenges of infertility.
Prevention is key to your health and well-being. We offer several types of screenings, both in the Women's Center and at other sites, to help you assess your health and take action.
Comprehensive, caring service
Both screening and diagnostic mammography services are performed in the Women's Center. When diagnostic services are needed, they can be addressed by breast ultrasound and other diagnostic procedures when approved by the referring physician. This allows for a shortened wait time for results about areas of concern.
Our experienced, dedicated technologists and radiologists assure that you will get the best care possible.
The Women's Center is located on the first floor of Advocate BroMenn Medical Center.
