Breast Care Center Medical Director Begins at Northwest

Breast surgeon Dawn Johnson Leonard, M.D., pictured here with Northwest Hospital President Erik Wexler, is the new medical director of the Herman & Walter Samuelson Breast Care Center at Northwest Hospital. Dr. Leonard is a fellowship-trained breast surgeon and is certified by the American Board of Surgery. Her appointment follows the grand reopening of the center a month ago in a more expansive, spa-like space near the hospital’s main entrance.

Prior to joining the staff at Northwest Hospital, Leonard was founder and chief executive officer of Leonard Surgical Care Associates in Frederick, Maryland. She was the first medical director of the Coordinated Breast Services Program at Frederick Memorial Hospital and was a clinical instructor in the Division of General Surgery at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Leonard received her medical degree from Howard University. She completed a residency in general surgery there and a breast surgical oncology fellowship at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C. In addition, Leonard trained in plastic surgery.

To facilitate the best approach to treating breast cancer, the new center has a dedicated room for weekly multi-D cancer conferences so oncologists, radiologists and cancer surgeons arrive at an ideal treatment plan for each patient. The center provides a continuum of care through LifeBridge Health’s Alvin and Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute, with chemotherapy offered at Northwest’s Infusion & Cancer Therapy Center and radiation therapy at Sinai Hospital or the Radiation Oncology Center at Owings Mills.

  • #DYK every 2-3 years women should receive a physical examination to screen for diseases; assess risk for future problems; discuss lifestyle habits; and keep vaccinations up to date. Be proactive about your health by staying on top of necessary screenings and health care visits. #WednesdayWisdom

  • The "Get in the Game" festivities continue as part of our #LifeBridgeHealth annual employee giving campaign. At #NorthwestHospital, staff members competed in a #Zumba Dance Off, while #CarrollHospital associates tested their #trivia knowledge, and the folks at #Levindale… well they just cooled off and enjoyed some delicious #icecream. Last year, our employees raised $202,000 to help local Maryland charities. Go #TeamLifeBridge!
