Community Partnerships and Outreach
Orange County is one of the few communities in the United States where hospitals, community organizations and government agencies work together to improve breast cancer treatment, support services, prevention and education.
Staff members from Breast Health Services collaborate with such organizations as:
- The American Cancer Society
- Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation
- Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization
- The Wellness Community
- Orange County Cancer Detection Partnership
The Orange County Breast Cancer Coalition also brings together representatives from the non-profit sector, medical care facilities and the Orange County health care Agency to ensure that community gaps and needs are addressed, and that efforts in education and support are not duplicated. Mission Hospital offers a number of programs which focus on outreach to the underserved, uninsured and low-income women to make certain they receive proper breast health and breast cancer care.
