Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held on July 15 for Jefferson Regional’s newly redesigned Breast Center, located on the first floor of the Jefferson Professional Center 1.
The center includes a private entrance, reserved parking and an exclusive, express registration area. The mammography waiting room is now discreetly located behind doors that lead into a comfortable living area, complete with fireplace, television and coffee bar. Changing rooms and two mammography suites are located off the waiting area, and ultrasound has been moved so patients no longer have to re-dress and visit a second location if an ultrasound is needed. Video screens with soothing outdoor scenes are mounted in each mammography room, and music will be piped in, as well. According to Wayne Harris, Director of Imaging Services, Jefferson Regional conducts approximately 8,000 mammograms each year.
In addition, a second Breast Center is expected to open in White Hall in the next few months and will also include curbside entry, dedicated parking, and a number of the same interior amenities.
Breast services provided by Jefferson Regional include screening mammograms, diagnostic mammograms, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy, stereotactic biopsy and bone density screening.
