The American College of Radiology (ACR) has recognized The Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness at Griffin Hospital as a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. This designation for achieving accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
Griffin Hospital is also accredited in breast MRI.
Outcomes of procedures performed at the Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness, according to the Rapid Quality Reporting System (by the American College of Surgeons), are some of the best in the country.
