Melbourne Regional Medical Center forms partnership with TEPAS Breast Center

(Melbourne, FL - January 5, 2021) Melbourne Regional Medical Center and TEPAS Breast Center are announcing a partnership to provide breast imaging and advanced breast care services to the Space Coast community.

TEPAS Breast Center, established in 2007, is Brevard’s first comprehensive breast center offering advanced breast care services including 3D Mammography, 4D breast ultrasound, image guided breast biopsies, clinical consultation, support services and more.

Led by a team of board-certified radiologists and a breast surgeon, TEPAS Breast Center was created to deliver more accurate prevention, early detection, diagnosis and support services in an environment of compassionate and coordinated care and support.

“Partnering with TEPAS, allows us to bring together technology and expertise of our two organizations in a coordinated environment”, said Ron Gicca, President of Melbourne Regional Medical Center - a private 119 bed acute care hospital in Brevard County. “TEPAS and Melbourne Regional Medical Center want to ensure that patients needing breast cancer services and treatment can achieve their needs in timely and coordinated care without duplication of services.”

TEPAS coordinates treatment and care with medical oncology, radiation oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, physical therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, breast prosthesis, nipple tattooing and hair restoration. 

TEPAS offers an inviting, comforting and compassionate environment for women undergoing breast cancer surveillance and diagnostic studies and is accepting new patients.
