Hospital invites public to tour Breast Care Center

Northfield Hospital’s expanded Breast Care Center will be available for public viewing Thursday, Sept. 24, from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Visitors will have an opportunity to tour the new dedicated patient space; meet Jose Fulco, MD, general surgeon and Physician Advisor for the center; and learn about the hospital’s latest technology.

“This is a great opportunity to see our new space and learn more about the breast care services we provide right here in the community,” said Sandy Mulford, director of Medical Imaging at Northfield Hospital.

The new, expanded Breast Care Center at Northfield Hospital is an integrative service that gives each patient a personalized experience while utilizing the latest technology. Access to critical information and counsel helps patients better understand their diagnosis and treatment options and expedites the decision-making process – all in a comfortable, patient-centered care setting. The services available include: digital mammography with computer-aided detection for screening and diagnosis, breast ultrasound, image-guided biopsies and cyst aspirations, referral options for breast MRI and stereotactic biopsies.

The project was supported by the Northfield Hospital Auxiliary’s commitment of $100,000 over three years, raised from the annual book fair.

“This commitment by the auxiliary really accelerated the development of the center,” said Kathleen Meier, Division Administrator for Ancillary Services. “It allowed us to expand the services we offer and accomplish the remodeling required to provide the right space for this kind of care.”

Refreshments will be served.
