The mood at Grand Opening of the newly opened Center for Breast Care at Emory Johns Creek Hospital (EJCH) on Sept. 12 matched the radiant sunshine outside. A crowd of several hundred people from Johns Creek Business Association (JCBA) and the Johns Creek Healthcare Association (JCHA) gathered to witness the ceremony and share in the celebration.

Reagan Curl, President of JCBA and Sigurjon Kristjannson, President of JCHA both offered congratulatory remarks as the packed room of spectators listened attentively.

Craig McCoy, CEO of EJCH acknowledged distinguished politicians and guests, but gave special recognition to Asst. Professor Dr. Leonal Vasquez, Chief of Radiology and Professor of Radiology and Imaging Sciences Dr. Maria Piraner, who cut the ribbon.

Johns Creek Mayor Mike Bodker was on hand and added his congratulations. “It’s a great honor to…celebrate another opening in Johns Creek. It’s a big deal because of what this particular business does.” He thanked McCoy and EJCH for being a “huge health care magnet for the city of Johns Creek” and noted “citizens are getting phenomenal health care because of the hospital.”

The 5,000 sq. ft. Center for Breast Care was open for guests to tour. The peaceful spa-like setting with soft lighting creates a calm venue for women who may be facing serious health issues. The small treatment rooms are designed to accommodate a technician, one patient and her nurse navigator.

According to Chrystal Barnes, Director of Imaging Services, a nurse navigator will walk a patient through every phase of their care. “She will be there from beginning to end to hold her hand. We want this to be a calming experience and we want our patients to be happy.”

This beautiful new facility offers the latest in technology to give the best care possible while remembering that each woman there is under stress and needs explanations and reassurance.
