Sullivan Center for Breast Health

Sullivan Breast Center

The Sullivan Breast Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington DC has emerged as a national model in providing expert care using the most minimally invasive treatments possible. We diagnose and treat more breast cancers than any other medical facility serving the Washington DC and Maryland area. The Sullivan Breast Center offers a rare combination of medically sophisticated breast care and breast cancer treatment, state-of-the-art technology, a warm pleasant environment and a streamlined patient-centered experience.


Complete Care Under One Roof

The multidisciplinary team of breast specialists provides services including breast imaging, breast surgery, radiation oncology, pathology, medical oncology, physical therapy and palliative care. These specialists take an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to care and treatment that benefits the patient. Also included as needed are psychosocial support, oncology nursing, genetic counseling, nutrition counseling, clinical trials, community outreach and more. Our dedicated breast imagers personally interpret all MRIs at the Sullivan Breast Center.

World Class Integrated Treatment

Only a comprehensive breast health center such as Sibley's organizes multi-disciplinary services into a fully integrated system of care. Breast imaging, breast cancer and breast reconstruction surgery, radiation oncology, medical oncology, physical therapy and other key teams collaborate closely to ensure the well-being of each patient.

Nationally Respected Comprehensive Breast Health and Breast Cancer Treatment Center

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation to the Cancer Program at Sibley Memorial Hospital. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care. Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard requirements at the time of its triennial survey.  
The Sullivan Breast Center is the only facility in the Washington DC area to have three accreditations:
  • Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology
  • NAPBC by the American College of Surgeons
  • Outstanding Achievement Award by the Commission on Cancer
Additionally, our Nurse Navigator is a Certified Breast Patient Navigator in Breast Imaging and Cancer Care (CBPN-IC), through the National Consortium of Breast Centers. The Nurse Navigator is available to guide patients through what might be an unfamiliar and often anxiety-inducing process.
