The look and feel of the new Women’s Center inspired by women, for women

Red Bank, NJ –  Over the past few years Jody PaPay, 41, resident of Holmdel, has been to the Women’s Center at Riverview Medical Center several times for different types of appointments, such as her yearly mammogram, routine ultrasound, and an ultrasound-guided biopsy. Upon her most recent visit, Jody was thoroughly impressed by the renovations seen at the Center since her last visit.

“The newly renovated Women’s Center is simply amazing, with every detail in place down to the books in the waiting areas,” says PaPay. “However, it’s the staff, including the receptionists and all the nurses and doctors that make the Women’s Center a truly special place.”

The new Women’s Center provides support for women of all ages, combined with the expertise to address preventive health, diagnosis, and treatment. Some of the changes to the Center include:

  • A third imaging room and a third digital mammography unit with CAD, so that more women can be seen for their annual mammograms
  • Expanded patient waiting room with views of the Navesink River
  • Private changing area and lounge within the patient-only space
  • New stereotactic biopsy equipment
  • Dedicated area for Perinatal Institute and non-stress testing
  • Dedicated area for imaging services

“The new look and feel of the Jane H. Booker Women’s Center was built based on feedback from our patients,” says Bokran Won M.D., fellowship-trained, board-certified radiologist and medical director of the Jane H. Booker Women’s Center at Riverview Medical Center. “We are very excited to know that the new Center exceeds our patients’ expectations with the creation of a tranquil and beautiful environment that matches the exceptional clinical care we provide.”

Every patient at the Jane H. Booker Women’s Center has access to the expertise and support of a multi-disciplinary women’s health care team including radiologists, OB/GYNs, surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons, genetic counselors, and pathologists, hailing from top medical schools and residency programs such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia Presbyterian and Yale University.

“Obviously, even with a “routine” mammogram, my nerves were very high, but the nurses have an unbelievable calming manner and were able to keep my mind off of the actual procedure,” says PaPay. “And when I had to go for my biopsy, Dr. Won kept me informed of every part of the procedure, made sure I was comfortable, and answered all of my questions.”

Riverview stands as the only hospital in Monmouth and Ocean counties to have three female, dedicated fellowship-trained breast imagers.
