A ceremony is being held to mark the opening of a new breast cancer center at Bristol Hospital.
Bristol Hospital's Beekley Center for Breast Health and Wellness is a 6,100 square-foot center that will offer patients comprehensive breast care and wellness in a spa-like setting. The center includes a waterfall wall and lighting designed to make patients feel calm and relaxed.
Each patient has a nurse navigator who assists with appointments and other details about treatment for the patient.
The center was made possible by a donation from the Beekley Family Foundation for $1 million.
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is set to begin at 11:15 a.m. at Bristol Hospital.
