The Center

We have embarked on creating a second Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas Regional Medical Center in Elizabeth. In partnering with Trinitas we have joined a collaborative team of doctors, technicians, patient advocates, and professionals to design a state-of-the-art facility that will expand and enhance the services currently available.

What drew us to Trinitas is best described by its President and CEO Gary Horan, FACHE, who pointed out that our missions were actually a perfect match – and that is: to provide excellent, compassionate healthcare to all people, especially those among us who are poor and vulnerable.

“Thanks to Connie’s empathy, sensitivity, and generosity, the patients of our region will have a state-of-the-art facility designed for best possible outcomes and compassionate care,” says Nadine Brechner, Chief Development Officer and Vice President Trinitas Health Foundation.

A New Approach to Caring

From the moment a woman enters the Connie Dwyer Breast Center at Trinitas, she will encounter a totally different hospital experience. Our aim is not only to provide early detection and healing but to improve the entire experience of caring for a patient.

Patients will come into a serene reception area and waiting room, where they will be greeted by a bilingual staff. The Center will be equipped with three mammography suites – one of which will offer advanced 3D imaging – allowing radiologists to view the breast in several layers.

This breakthrough technology can detect 41% more invasive breast cancers and can reduce false positive results by up to 40%.

In addition to mammography, we will have two ultrasound suites and an advanced biopsy suite so we are able to provide the very best in screening and diagnostic technology.

We have accomplished a great deal, but our mission to provide comprehensive screening, diagnosis and treatment is ongoing. We are laser-focused on continuing our life-saving work to bring healing and hope to the women of Elizabeth and beyond.
