Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center opened in 2003 thanks to the commitment and generosity of benefactor Tom Veloz, the Veloz family and many other generous donors, and the continued support of the community.

Known as one of the best and most comprehensive breast facilities in Southern California, the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center provides a legacy of "breast health" for our community as a memorial to Tom's wife, Sheila, who lost her battle against breast cancer in 2001.

Sheila Regan Veloz was a staunch supporter of the Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Foundation's Breast Cancer Awareness Program. Her fundraising efforts and indefatigable spirit inspired many to help take up the cause. Her fundraising efforts helped to provide a variety of patient care equipment and services at Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital over the years. Sheila would be proud that this significant focus on women's health continues to encourage early detection and save countless lives.

Designated by the American College of Radiology as a Breast Center of Excellence, the Sheila R. Veloz Breast Center is defined by quality standards and has undergone a rigorous accreditation process including image evaluations by a team of experts

Veloz Breast Center staff for their expert care and diagnosis and for not taking for granted a very small 'suspicious area' that turned out to be DCIS (ductal carcinoma in situ). You saved my life."

"There is quite simply no other breast center like this one. Our community is so blessed to have it. Thank you for your amazing care! Keep up the good work!" Read Teri's full story HERE.
