rot4Mammography services at the Franciscan Physician Network Hammond Clinic have relocated to the Breast Center at Franciscan Health Munster, 701 Superior Drive.

“We are excited about moving the department to the new Breast Center at Franciscan Health Munster,” said Cindy Duran, director of the Oncology Center and Breast Center. “The center opened in July of 2018 and offers comprehensive care in one location. Convenient parking, easy access, spacious rooms, and extended hours are just a few benefits of the move.”

The Munster Breast Center is located 2-1/2 miles south of the Hammond Clinic, on the third floor of the Cancer Center.

“All of our dedicated and experienced staff would like women to know that they are always available to guide them through the screening and diagnostic process,” Duran said. Expanded Monday through Saturday hours for mammogram appointments will increase access and convenience for women.

  • 3-D mammography
