Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital Women's Diagnostic Center
Opening its doors in April 2010, The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital Women's Diagnostic Center was constructed in existing hospital space on the north side of the building near the cashier's office.
The 1,200 square-foot space will was completely renovated. It was built in existing space that was previously used to store imaging and other files and records. The estimated cost of the project was approximately $500,000.
The center was designed with patient privacy and comfort at its core, and has been created to have a "spa like" atmosphere. It features a private lounge, completely separate changing areas and private restroom facilities.
The center features digital mammography, as well as a DEXA (bone density) scanner and ultrasound capabilities. This is the first time that digital mammography is available in Fremont, Ohio.
Hours of Operation:
Monday, Tuesday: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Wednesday: 7:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Thursday, Friday: 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday: 8 a.m. – noon
The center is named for The Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital, which supported its construction with pledge of $100,000. Dennis Newman honored his mother Nannette ‘Nan’ Newman’s legacy at the hospital with a generous contribution. As a demonstration of gratitude for Newman’s generosity, the waiting area in the new center has been designated ‘Nan’s Lounge.’
