Breast Care Center Waiting Room Renovated with Your Help

09-01-2014

Thanks to your support, patients at Norman Regional’s Breast Care Center have a comfortable place to wait when they visit. The center’s waiting room has recently undergone a wall-to-wall remodel thanks with the help of a $15,000 grant received from the Norman Regional Health Foundation.

Previously the waiting room did not have enough seating to accommodate patient needs on busy days: the space was also not as inviting and calming as the staff would have liked for patients who are often anxious while waiting for their appointment. The remodel added six more seats and included new carpet, wallpaper, furniture, television and artwork.

Cindy Barghols, Mammography Supervisor, said she had been trying for a few years to find a way to help alleviate the waiting room issues when her Director, Trevor Wall, suggested she apply for a Health Foundation Grant.

"I want to say thanks to the donors of Norman Regional Health Foundation – it has really made a difference for our patients," said Barghols. "This has been a great morale booster for both patients and staff! The space is so inviting and helps keep patients calm and helps us create a hopeful-minded atmosphere."

Barghols said patients are excited about the remodel and often comment on how much they enjoy the newly revamped space.
