Kettering Health Middletown recently expanded its women’s services with a dedication of its new Kettering Breast Evaluation Center.

Located at 6147 Ohio 122, just southeast of Interstate 75’s Middletown exit, the center offers patients a relaxing environment featuring a 3D mammography unit with a sensory suite that includes a 49-inch flat panel monitor designed to reduce anxiety and increase comfort.

In addition, we will be able to continue to grow in our primary care service to meet community demands.”
