St. Luke's opens new regional breast center in Monroe County

St. Luke's University Health Network opened its second diagnostic imaging facility, specifically designed to serve Monroe County and the surrounding area. 

The new mammography system features a remote-control system to allow patients to control their own breast compression with the help of a technologist. 

The new center is located at 200 St. Luke's Lane in Stroudsburg. 

“We are committed to doing everything we can to reduce a patient’s anxiety and that influenced each decision regarding the overall concept, patient flow and physical design,” says Michele Giletto, St. Luke’s network director, women’s imaging. “Knowing that most patients have anxiety about getting their mammograms because of the possibility of having breast cancer, we wanted to focus on patient comfort and care by providing a warm, welcoming atmosphere for patients and accurate and thorough evaluations with less wait time.”

The facility also provides automated breast ultrasound services, diagnostic breast ultrasounds and a stereotactic breast biopsy, among others.
