The Baskin Breast Care Center

Breast Care Center Resources

    "I joined the Breast Care Center in March 2020.  My 38 year nursing career has been primarily in the intensive care unit and cardiac cath lab.   After 20 years at YRMC, I transferred to the role of Nurse Navigator at the Breast Care Center because I am passionate about working with patients with breast issues.  Both of my sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer at age 45, 7 years apart.   Through my own family’s experience, I understand the importance of providing emotional support, empathy and education as patients and their loved ones are navigated through their diagnosis.  I feel  extremely blessed to be a part of our community’s Breast Care Center where excellence in caring for our patients is our # 1 goal."
    Ruth joined breast surgical oncology in March of 2016 and during that time she has worked with 4 breast surgeons.  Ruth has 17 years of experience in nursing from ER to ICU, Pediatrics and Med Surg.  She has a passion for helping patients with breast cancer and truly feels blessed to be able to help in this capacity.


    YRMC and The Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Prescott created the Community BreastCare Fund to make digital mammography screening available to women throughout the Quad Cities region. You’re eligible for free mammography screening through the Community BreastCare Fund if you:
    • Are between the ages of 40 and 64
    • Lack adequate health insurance or have a high co-pay or deductible
    • Do not qualify for AHCCCS (Arizona’s Medicaid)
    • Do not qualify for the Well Woman HealthCheck Program
    • Can’t afford the cost of digital mammography screening
    For more information about the Community BreastCare Fund, call (928) 442-8900 or 1-877-436-5290.


    This fund was created to provide advanced diagnostics and biopsies to women who do not have the financial resources to determine if an abnormality identified by mammography is malignant or benign. Through YRMC Patient Financial Assistance, the hospital provides financial assistance for patients who meet certain income guidelines. Call: (928) 771-5151
