For more than 20 years, the multidisciplinary team at Breastlink has provided comprehensive breast health services to the women of Orange County. With locations in Orange, Laguna Hills and Murrieta, Breastlink has expanded to Newport Beach. Now, even more women can benefit from Breastlink services at a location convenient to them.
A Comprehensive Breast Health Care Model
Breastlink has pioneered an innovative model of highly personalized breast cancer care. This model relies on the expertise of various breast cancer specialists to craft treatment plans designed around individual patient needs. Throughout treatment, education is emphasized and patients are placed in control of their care. The Breastlink multidisciplinary care team includes medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, nurses, physician assistants, reconstructive surgeons and psychosocial support staff.
Dr. John Link, author of The Breast Cancer Survivor Manual, founded Breastlink as a single outpatient facility in Long Beach. This followed his experience helping to establish one of the nation’s first multidisciplinary breast cancer programs at Long Beach Medical Center, which informed his decision-making with Breastlink.
Over the years, Breastlink has expanded to four new locations in Orange, Laguna Hills, Murrieta and Newport Beach, with another scheduled to open in Encino in 2016. This expansion allows more women of Orange County to benefit from comprehensive breast health services at outpatient locations near their homes and workplaces.
