Hospital news | Monday, August 1, 2011

St. Claire Regional (SCR) is hosting a public open house for its new Women's Imaging Center on Sunday, August 14, from 1 to 4 p.m. Everyone is invited to join us for a tour of our new center while enjoying free refreshments and entering to win free screening mammograms, as well as, many salon and spa services provided courtesy of Expressions Salon and Renew Therapeutic Massage.

The new Women's Imaging Center, located on the first floor of St. Claire Regional, offers state-of-the-art technology in a stress-free tranquil environment. The new center is focused on providing a more comfortable, relaxing environment to help ease the tension that often comes with diagnostic screenings. "Women spend so much time taking care of everyone in their lives that they often forget to look after their own needs - especially their health needs," says, Charlotte Lewis, SCR Administrative Director of Diagnostic Services. "Getting timely preventative diagnostic screenings can help us to live longer, healthier lives; so, we are very excited to offer a more comfortable and serene environment for women in our region to receive those screenings."

St. Claire Regional's new Women's Imaging Center features digital mammography which provides clearer images than traditional mammography allowing radiologists to focus more closely on any areas of concern. The center also includes bone density testing (used to detect osteoporosis), breast ultrasound and stereotactic breast biopsy.
