Breast Health Support Services

Comprehensive Support Services for Breast Health

University Health System is a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence – one of only four in all of Texas. This designation exemplifies our belief that comprehensive breast care should be available to everyone in our community. Our support services begin with expert care and extend to support groups for breast cancer survivors. Patient navigators also are here to help.

Women's Cancer Support Group

When you’re dealing with breast cancer, sometimes you want to talk to someone else who has been through it.

For support before, during and after breast cancer, look no further than our monthly women's cancer support group. Meet survivors, get advice from our expert guest speakers and learn how to stay healthy in spite of cancer.

Breast Health Community Outreach

University nurses and other experts bring the message of breast health to your corporation, health fair or professional organization – at no charge. We can tailor a presentation especially for your group, provide screenings, discuss breast cancer prevention and much more.

Financial Assistance for Breast Care

University Health System is on a mission to reduce breast cancer death rates in South Texas. That’s why we help you qualify for any available financial assistance you may need to obtain mammograms and other services.

Early detection of cancer is the key to breast cancer survival. If you’re a woman over age 40 without health insurance, contact us to learn more about financial assistance. Your life may depend on it.

Mobile Mammograms

We understand it can be inconvenient to take time off work to get a mammogram. Our mobile mammography program, healthyUexpress, helps you obtain breast care with ease.

Our HealthyUexpress can be sent to your place of business at no cost. It’s our way of supporting the women of our community. We provide:

  • Convenience – mobile mammograms typically only take 15-20 minutes, including registration time
  • Comfort – healthyUexpress houses two private changing rooms
  • Peace of mind – your employees can receive their mammogram results within 24 hours
  • Financial assistance – for your employees who may qualify

Talk to your employer about scheduling healthyUexpress to benefit you and your co-workers.

Your Patient Navigator

When a disease like breast cancer strikes, you need an expert at your side every step of the way. Our patient navigators connect you with resources, help coordinate your care and offer you emotional support.

Your navigator is always a phone call away. Never walk the breast cancer path alone.
