Tawam Oncology Center

The Breast Care Centre at Tawam Hospital in affiliation with Johns Hopkins

The Breast Care Centre, the first of its kind in the UAE, opened in November 2007 to the UAE national and expatriate community.

This free standing facility located at the Tawam Hospital Campus is equipped with state- of-the-art screening and diagnostic equipment and a mobile breast screening unit which enables us to offer this vital service to women close to their areas of residence throughout the emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Our goal is to offer easy access to prompt breast care and breast screening facilities with a view to early detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast disease.

We have access to a dedicated multidisciplinary team of health care professionals including specially trained breast nurses, breast cancer nurse coordinators, mammographers, ultrasonographers, radiologists, surgeons, plastic surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, psychiatrists, medical transcriptionists, clerks and social workers.
