BreastCare center helps area women

Weirton Medical Center added to the area’s options for women’s health care needs in dedicating its BreastCare Center on Tuesday.

The multimillion-dollar investment represents the culmination of a multi-year effort aimed toward providing a health-care area directed specifically at the needs of women.

The BreastCare Center is near the All About Women health suite, and is on the main floor of the WMC Medical Office Building.

Dr. Carol Slomski, who leads the medical professionals at the BreastCare Center noted the dedication marked the end of a five-year effort but also a beginning.

The center includes support from the community, having received major donations from the Rotary Club of Weirton Heights, as well as donations from Weirton firefighters and Weir High soccer teams.

We salute WMC for continuing its commitment to the healthy lives of area women.
