Betty Wallace Women's Health Centre

Located at Mississauga Hospital, the Betty Wallace Women's Health Centre specializes in screening and early intervention for breast disease or osteoporosis.

The Centre offers women with potential breast disease or osteoporosis a place where they can see a team of specialists and have most of their screening and initial intervention procedures conducted in one convenient location.

The Women's Health Centre is an Ontario Breast Screening Program (OBSP) certified affiliate site. Women over the age of 50 who have no previous history of breast cancer can self refer for screening mammography. The OBSP ensures that all women receive high quality mammograms, a clinical breast examination by a specially trained nurse examiner and information about breast self-examination.

Services include mammography, bone densitometry and surgical consultations, and breast ultrasound.
Stereotactic breast biopsies can also be done on-site, allowing small samples from breast tissue to be obtained for laboratory analysis. The procedure is completed with a minimum of discomfort, on an outpatient basis by a radiologist.

The Women's Health Centre is designed with its own private entrance, lots of natural light, wood, and tones of coral, cream and lavender, creating a spa-like setting for screening and treatment. Respecting the needs of a diverse female population, the Centre offers women two-piece gowns with the option of wearing a mid-length or a full-length wrap-around skirt. The Centre is also wheelchair accessible.

The Betty Wallace Women's Health Centre is named in memory of Betty Wallace, a community resident who lost her courageous battle with breast cancer in 1993.
