Founded in 1986, the mission of The Rose is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by providing screening, diagnosis and access to treatment to women regardless of their ability to pay. The Rose is Houston area's preeminent breast health care center. Through two community-based comprehensive diagnostic centers and a fleet of Mobile Mammography Vans, The Rose provides more than 70,000 services annually to throughout Southeast Texas. Services include mammography screening, diagnostics, ultrasounds, breast biopsies, bone density testing, physician consults, social services support, education and access to treatment.
Patient Navigation is our ultimate service which moves uninsured women diagnosed with breast cancer into timely treatment and care. We understand the emotional and mental stress of facing a life threatening disease without the resources to fight it and our job is to walk with each woman, there to support and guide, throughout her journey. The Rose 'levels' the playing field, providing every woman a chance to survive and thrive--insured and uninsured--with a sense of dignity and worth.
