About CarePoint Health Center for Breast Health
Every year, more than 220,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer, the most common cancer among women worldwide. Recent advances in understanding the biology of breast cancer are helping women with breast cancer experience fewer side effects from treatment and live longer.
At CarePoint Health Center for Breast Health, you can expect a thoughtful, thorough and compassionate experience that focuses on the most important aspect of your visit – you. CarePoint Health employs a multidisciplinary approach, encouraging a staff of esteemed physicians, board-certified, residency and fellowship trained radiologists, registered nurses, and registered technologists to work together to provide you with the best possible care.
Because the earlier breast cancer is detected, the higher the chance that treatment will be successful, CarePoint Health also provides comprehensive screening and diagnostic breast services including ultrasound, breast MRI, and 3D mammography, as well as image guided percutaneous biopsy with all modalities.
This approach, along with the use of the most advanced equipment, surgical practices, and treatments, makes CarePoint Health Center for Breast Health the premier facility for all of your breast health needs. In fact, we are leading the way in breast reconstruction surgery as the first in Hudson County to perform free flap reconstruction (DEIP), a specialized procedure that provides for both the successful removal of breast tissue and a post-operative effect that maintains a superior cosmetic result by using the patient’s own fatty tissue and skin. This groundbreaking breast reconstruction surgery greatly expands the capabilities and surgical options available to patients in the region. CarePoint Health offers the full spectrum of breast surgery and reconstruction options so patients can consider not only the best result for the removal of a breast tumor, but also the best post-operative quality of life.

The earlier that breast cancer is detected, the higher the chance that treatment will be successful. CarePoint Health provides comprehensive screening and diagnostic breast services, including mammography and stereotactic breast biopsy — the most accurate, efficient and minimally invasive biopsy technique. Our staff of board-certified, residency and fellowship trained radiologists, registered nurses, and registered technologists work together to provide you with the best care possible.
Patient-centered care shifts the focus to the individual needs, values, and choices of the patient. Our patients’ priorities drive the pathway of our clinical decisions. Effective communication and a true patient-physician partnership are essential elements of this method of care. All members of the team, beginning with the patient, are informed of and in agreement with the plan of care.
Customizing patient care recognizes that each patient is unique and may have different needs, wants, and preferences. Consequently, the relationship that Dr. Kempner builds with her patients offers the best possible clinical outcome while providing care that is interactive, responsive, and compassionate.
