UVA Health is scheduled to open a new comprehensive Breast Care Center on Oct. 12. Based on feedback from patients, this 18,500-square-foot facility will house the majority of breast care services in one convenient location, which will help ensure coordinated visits and expand the focus on patient-centered care.
With the assistance of telehealth, patients will be able to meet with their entire care team in a single clinic appointment, including surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, genetics, plastic surgery and radiology.
The center will include the following:
- Breast imaging/mammography
- Breast surgery clinic
- Breast medical oncology
- Plastic surgery clinic
- Infusion services
- Lymphedema therapy
- Clinical trials
- Supportive care services
- Bone density
- Flourish Positive Image Boutique
(Note that the new UVA Breast Care Center will not impact other UVA mammography and MRI imaging sites. These sites will remain open for screening services.)
“We are looking forward to sharing with the public our new Breast Care Center, including the latest technology and advanced treatment options, this October,” says Christi Sheffield, director of clinical operations for UVA Community Oncology. “We plan to have a welcoming space with a lot of natural light to provide the best possible setting to care for our patients. Our highly skilled, multidisciplinary team of specialists is excited to begin seeing patients this fall.”
