WRHA Breast Health Centre
The Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) Breast Health Centre is a three level, 6,000 square foot space situated directly across from the St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Calnitsky Associates Architects was asked to create a warm, non-institutional environment with user comfort in mind. The Breast Health Centre was the first facility of its type in Manitoba to centralize resources in one location. It features a Rapid Access Diagnostic Unit with facilities for on-site early diagnostic tests (ultrasound, mammography, steriotactic biopsy and / or open biopsy), risk assessment and counseling, and post-surgical care, including physiotherapy.
