Press release from San Ramon Regional Medical Center:
Oct. 2, 2020
San Ramon Regional Medical Center is committed to the fight against breast cancer. Statistics indicate that one out of every eight women will develop breast cancer sometime in her lifetime. If detected early, the five-year survival rate is 98 percent. Mammograms are the most effective form of early detection.
For patients who have been putting off their medical needs due to fear of coming to the hospital, there is no need to delay care. San Ramon Regional Medical Center continues to care for all patients with healthcare needs not related to COVID-19 and that includes providing routine mammograms and screenings. It’s important that patients do not put off routine screenings as that can create problems down the road.
Every precaution is being taken, combining strong infection prevention processes, staff training, testing, and ample supply of personal protective equipment. San
