Breast Cancer Program


The Breast Cancer Program at The J. Phillip Citta Regional Cancer Center helps meet the special needs of women undergoing breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, treatment and follow-up. Our dedicated nurse consultant works collaboratively with physicians, nurses, case manager and support services staff to educate and counsel patients, and ease them through this difficult time in their lives.

Through a special grant, Community Medical Center coordinates outreach programs that offer free screenings and treatments for breast cancer and other certain cancers throughout Ocean County.
