Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center’s Women’s Imaging Program consists of a team of highly skilled, American College of Radiology accredited specialists who use the most current technology and techniques. This includes the “softer mammogram,” which uses the MammoPad to provide greater comfort. Southern Hills has also received the top safety score in Nevada from a leading consumer magazine.
