New Breast and Wellness Center Opens at Baystate

BaystateBreastCenterSPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Baystate Medical Center in Springfield celebrated the ribbon cutting of its brand new state-of-the-art Breast and Wellness Center tonight.

The facility brings together the radiology side and clinical side of treatment.

Directors at the center say they really tried to create a patient-centered place for people who are going through a scary time.

“We try to ease their worry by having a soothing environment that has calm colors, we have music playing, comfortable furniture, spa like robes so even when they’re in the exam room they’re not feeling exposed, so we really tried to ease patients while they’re here,” explains Co-Director of the center, Holly Mason.

The Breast and Wellness Center at Baystate was a year in the making.  It features a full range of services including mammography, diagnosis and counseling.
