Bergen New Bridge Medical Center recently cut the ribbon for its new 3D mammography unit, which is specifically designed for patient comfort by combining special mood lighting with patented comfort compression paddles.
Celebrated on Women’s Equality Day, the unit is another example of the transformation underway at Bergen New Bridge Medical Center.
“It is so appropriate that the inauguration of this unit took place on Women’s Equality Day. Although this day was created to initially celebrate the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote, it has grown to represent so much more,” said Deborah Visconi, CEO and President of Bergen New Bridge Medical Center. “For us, today is about reinforcing our commitment to equity in health care for women by ensuring cutting-edge technology is accessible to all, especially those who are traditionally underserved. . I am proud of my team’s dedication to our mission and grateful for the support of our county executive and elected officials, which fuels our continued growth and ever-increasing ability to provide quality care to our diverse communities.
“Thanks to our outstanding management team and the critical upgrades to the mammography unit at Bergen New Bridge, the facility has become not only a tremendous healthcare center but also a brilliant community asset and I am delighted to what the future of the facility holds,” said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco.
