What is the Breast Link Program?
The Breast Link Program strives to raise awareness about the importance of breast health and make it easy for women to obtain breast exams and mammograms. Our goal is to provide breast health information to more than 5,000 women in our community, with 200 FREE mammograms offered to those who opt to fully participate in the program.
Through Saint Agnes Hospital’s Breast Link Program, a Breast Connector will help you make your appointment. A physician will provide a clinical breast exam, a mammogram and the results, all in the course of a single day at no cost to you. We can even provide complimentary transportation for you, from your home to our front door, and back to your home.
A Breast Link Buddy will greet you upon your arrival and answer any questions you may have. Your Breast Link Buddy will stay with you for your entire visit with us. She will manage your schedule for the day, introduce you to members of our team, and even treat you to lunch!
The Saint Agnes Hospital Breast Link Program gives you a home base for your current and future health needs. We are the place to turn to when you need answers to your questions. If your clinical breast exam and mammogram results are normal, you will receive a letter recommending you continue to schedule a mammogram every year. If we find something to be concerned about during your initial visit, we will help you coordinate a follow-up appointment at the Breast Center.
The Breast Link is recognized as a partnership between Saint Agnes Hospital and the Maryland Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, created to expand breast health awareness and increase the number of breast screenings within three targeted communities in Baltimore City. The program provides a home base for women aged 40 and over to receive seamless and convenient breast and medical care.
