More Comprehensive Care For Breast Cancer Patients
A new 1.5 million dollar facility at Bristol Regional Medical Center will focus on providing a more centralized, comprehensive care for breast cancer patients. Work on the Leonard Family Comprehensive Breast Center should begin soon and move towards completion by next April. Wellmont Health System officials laid out the plans for the facility adjacent to the hospitalís west entrance. The name is to honor philanthropists Frank and Jackie Leonard and the Leonard Family Foundation who provided a million dollar donation. This means that Wellmont Cancer Institute will now have screening capability and diagnostic services under one roof. The area will be over 5 thousand square-feet next to general surgery services on the second floor. The center should reduce wait time between diagnosis, consultation and treatment with more exam rooms, waiting rooms, offices, a conference room, a library, a resource center and space for American Cancer Society programs. A portion of the hospital parking lot has also been designated for the new center. (bg)
