Higgins Center Services

We offer a wide variety of services for women's health.

Breast Care

One of the best ways to help you maintain optimum health is through early detection of breast disease. We want to help you establish a lifelong program of breast self-exam and mammograms. Your doctor is the best guide in determining where and how often you should have a mammogram. However, doctors recommend a yearly mammogram after age 40. St.Joseph Hospital also offers biopsies using ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy for those occasions when further diagnosis is needed.

Bone Density

Osteoporosis, the loss of bone density, affects 23 million men and women in America, 75 percent of whom do not even know they have it. Our center uses DEXA scan, the most advanced way to determine bone mass to diagnose osteoporosis. This simple, painless test detects osteoporosis in its earliest stages. And with treatment, regular exercise and proper diet, you may prevent the disease or lessen its impact.

Wellness Services

Our wellness services include:

  • Massage therapy: A treatment for the body. While none of these benefits can be guaranteed, massage can help you relax, improve circulation, loosen tight muscles and improve flexibility.
