BreastScreen SA has unveiled its new state-of-the-art Assessment Clinic and State Coordination Unit at Level 1, 300 Wakefield Street, Adelaide.
The new Assessment Clinic is just 500 metres from the original Flinders Street building and includes an additional consult room, a new ultrasound room, larger client waiting areas, and a dedicated results clinic space. The clinic also features two new mammography machines, using the latest imaging technology to improve the client experience.
Clients, staff, unions, and other stakeholders were consulted on everything from the layout of the building to the waiting room furniture, artwork, finishings, and even the gowns, to ensure the space enhances both the staff and client experience.
The co-located State Coordination Unit has also been designed to optimise workflow to support the planning, delivery and monitoring of breast cancer screening services throughout South Australia.
BreastScreen SA Clinical Director A/Prof. Michelle Reintals thanked consumers and staff for their efforts throughout this project.
"This new location keeps us in the CBD and is close to our current Flinders Street site, so it is familiar to our staff and clients," A/Prof. Reintals said.
"It offers a welcoming and supportive space for our team to care for our clients during what can be an anxious time."
