Delivering Advanced Breast Cancer Care Across Our Community - Help us Fund The Dream
It’s about Hope. It’s about Strength. It’s about Compassion.
Since 1978, Dr. Dominic Zazzarino ("Dr. Zazz") has been working relentlessly to bring advanced comprehensive breast cancer detection and treatment to the Jordan community. "I’ve known for years", says Dr. Zazz, "that community-based cancer care is successful because people need support and want to stay close to home – close to their families and friends."
As Medical Director of Jordan’s new Breast Center, Dr. Zazz says "The Center is founded upon a deep commitment to updating our approach to treatment continually, based on the latest research and evidence-based best practices, while adhering to the "whole patient" philosophy that acknowledges all relevant factors in a patient’s treatment. If you are a woman in southeastern Massachusetts and you come to Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth, you will know you are going to get high quality care, that the outcomes will be measured, so that you will be able to compare and know your treatment plan will be equal to the most advanced care provided anywhere else across the country."
"I am an eight-year breast cancer survivor who is a grateful recipient of extraordinary care from Jordan. My admiration for their staff is limitless. I would like to add my voice to those of hundreds of women who owe Dr. Zazzarino their survival. He is an unusually talented diagnostician who invests his humanity in the care of his patients. I encourage all women to take advantage of this gift – local state-of-the-art breast cancer care from the Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth Cancer Center."

"Because Dr. Zazzarino and his team kept looking, they found my cancer early enough to save my life."

"With everything right here at Jordan, it allowed me to get right home to my family, to what was important to me. It’s great to be close."

On October 1, 2009, members of Jordan’s sugical staff launched a fundraising initiative to benefit the Beth Israel Deaconess - Plymouth’s Breast Center, hoping to inspire gifts to be made in honor of Dr. Zazz.
