Ratcliff Designs Comforting Environment for Patients and Families

EMERYVILLE, Calif., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Alta Bates Summit Medical Center celebrates the opening of two new health care areas designed to soothe patients and families navigating treatment options for life-threatening illnesses and to offer health resources. The Carol Ann Read Breast Health Center provides seamless delivery of screening and diagnostic procedures, all in one location, for the quickest turnaround in diagnosis and facilitating collaboration among various breast health specialists. The Family Resource Center and Markstein Cancer Education and Prevention Services offers patients, their family and friends a place to gather, gain knowledge, and combat the helplessness often associated with a loved one's diagnosis. Ratcliff designed both the 11,500-square-foot Breast Health Center and 4,500-square-foot Family Resource Center. Jain Malkin provided interior design services for the Breast Health Center.

Centrally located in the Providence Pavilion on the Summit Campus in Oakland, the Breast Health Center and Family Resource Center are just footsteps from the main entrance to ease way finding for patients and their families. Both areas were designed to augment modern healthcare delivery. Putting the Breast Health Center's multiple services under one roof facilitates quicker diagnosis as well as constant communication among all of the various specialists-breast-imaging specialists, surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, and pathologists-and results in more collaborative treatment. The Center includes:

-- Four digital mammography rooms, bone densitometry rooms, a stereotactic

breast biopsy room, and two procedure rooms.

-- An efficient floor plan that separates patient and clinical spaces,

allowing for diagnostic mammography to be completed at the rapid rate

of one patient every six minutes.
