The Breast Center at Milford Regional Medical Center
Breast care excellence is a health care initiative across the country and emerging standards demand new commitment. At Milford Regional we have a highly experienced team of professionals in diagnostic imaging, pathology, surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, physical therapy and nursing. While Milford Regional has had these separate specialties caring for breast diseases for years, the mission of The Breast Center is to unify these resources to ensure patients receive the very highest standards of care. Patients are benefiting from this new model of care that provides a seamless coordination of services.
Our Breast Center model includes:
- Awareness of the Best Practice standards
- Twice-monthly interdisciplinary breast conferences
- Internal quality and outcome studies
- Clinical trials and surveillance
- Continuing education
Our Team Takes it Personally
The number one priority for The Breast Center is a uniquely personal commitment to each patient. The Breast Center team meet regularly to actively engage in each patient case, putting best practices in place to coordinate care and bring each patient back to breast health. This thorough team effort results in more expedient diagnosis and treatment as well as greater patient comfort and confidence.
One of the key players at the Breast Center is our Nurse Navigator, Kimberly Maurer, RN. Kimberly serves as a continuous liaison between the patients and all of the Breast Center services. She is also the point of contact for all of the providers – physicians, nurses and therapists. Kimberly navigates each patient through their entire experience at the Breast Center providing education, support and compassion to the patients and their families.

Already a Leader in Cancer Care
Breast concerns involve much more than cancer alone. When they do require oncology care, our close partnership with Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center offers the best medical oncology and radiation therapy right on our campus.
Together, the team’s goal is to provide breast patients with the most comprehensive, streamlined care available. Recently, The Breast Center at Milford Regional Medical Center received a full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Our Breast Center is one of only eight nationally accredited centers in Massachusetts.
Accreditation is only given to those centers that have committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. A breast center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement.
The Massachusetts Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure works to reduce breast cancer in our state by funding education, screening and treatment programs, with an emphasis on those facing barriers to care. In the past five years, they have raised over $4.5 million for screening, education awareness, and treatment grants in Massachusetts.
The Breast Center at Milford Regional Medical Center is proud to be one of 25 grant recipients in the state of Massachusetts this year. Funding will support our partnership with The Latino Health Insurance Program to improve access to screening and care for Latina women in our community. Support from the Massachusetts Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure connects us to providers across the state united by the Affiliate’s mission to achieve 100% Screening and 100% Access to Care.
