DeKalb Medical at Hillandale Expands Womens Health Facility
May 16, 2012
(May 16, 2012) DeKalb Medical is pleased to announce the expansion of the Hillandale Breast Center. “During the last three years, the Hillandale Breast Center has experienced a 20 percent increase in patient visits, and this expansion will provide the capacity to meet the high demand for women’s health services in our community,” says Susan Harris, RN, MBA, vice president and administrator of DeKalb Medical at Hillandale.
Funded by the support of the DeKalb Medical Foundation, the newly renovated Breast Center will offer additional amenities for the comfort and convenience of women in the Southwest DeKalb, Rockdale and Newton Counties and beyond.
Among the highlights are access to onsite nurse navigators five days a week as well as quicker scheduling for mammograms and biopsies. The new facility will be 4,170 square feet, compared to the original space of 1,600 square feet. Patients and their families will now be served in more spacious waiting, dressing and procedure rooms, all in close proximity to parking and physician offices. A grand opening for the public is slated for this summer.
To schedule an appointment, patients or their doctors may call 404.501.2660
