JamesCare Comprehensive Breast Center
Revolutionizes Breast Cancer Care
The fight against breast cancer took a major leap forward mid-January when the JamesCare Comprehensive Breast Center opened its doors at 1145 Olentangy River Road and welcomed patients seeking the most inclusive approach to diagnosing and treating breast cancer.
As part of the only NCI-designated comprehensive cancer center in central Ohio, the JamesCare Comprehensive Breast Center is home to leading breast cancer experts focused solely on understanding, preventing, treating and ultimately curing this disease. This multidisciplinary team designs comprehensive treatment plans that are tailored specifically to each patient’s type of breast cancer.
The Center’s integration of research and clinical space, as well as its proximity to Ohio State — literally blocks away — enable breast cancer researchers and clinicians to work directly together, bringing the latest innovations in prevention, detection and treatment to every patient. This unprecedented collaboration leads to more and faster discoveries in the fight against breast cancer and will help create The James’ ultimate vision — a cancer-free world.
The four-story, state-of-the-art facility, located at the corner of Olentangy River Road and 3rd Avenue in northwest Columbus, is the first of its kind in the Midwest to offer the full continuum of breast cancer care — from prevention and screening through detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship — in one convenient location.
Combining all facets of breast care — including annual mammograms, complete diagnostic services, comprehensive breast-cancer treatment, access to clinical trials, reconstructive breast surgery, medical nutritional services, survivorship support, risk counseling, financial counseling, and rehabilitation — benefits patients by providing multidisciplinary support under one roof.
The Center was designed to meet the needs of patients and their families. In fact, OSUCCC – James breast cancer survivors provided input on the design of the building. Their contributions led to the inclusion of private counseling suites and waiting areas, a meditation room, a library and resource center, and a café with patio dining.
The Center is also home to Hope’s Boutique, a shop dedicated to helping women look and feel their best during and after cancer treatment. The Boutique provides care for more than 5,000 women per year.
