New Center for Breast Health Offering Comprehensive Care

Meritus Health has launched a new Center for Breast Health. Led by Medical Director Dr. Kerri Hesley, the new center includes a multidisciplinary team of top-rated specialists--radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, pathologists, a nurse navigator, psychotherapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and two breast surgeons new to the area—Drs. Susan Kesmodel and Emily Bellavance. Both surgical oncologists from the nationally recognized breast center of the University of Maryland, Kesmodel and Bellavance bring a wide range of surgical and clinical experience to the Washington County community. "The collaboration of the entire team on each individual case makes an important difference for our patients. This coordination of care allows each patient to receive a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to his or her specific diagnosis," said Dr. Hesley. From prevention and screening to diagnostics, treatment and recovery, the new Center for Breast Health offers a comprehensive approach to breast health for the local community.
