FORT JACKSON, S.C. -- Moncrief Army Community Hospital formally opened a $10 million Specialty Care and Women's Health Clinic Tuesday morning.

The newly renovated clinic combines Gynecology, Surgery and Dermatology Clinics to create a one stop shop clinic for women.

The facility will provide care for women seeking breast care, to include mammograms, ultrasounds, stereotactic breast biopsies and well woman exams.

The co-location of services will enhance patient flow and provide a friendly environment for Soldiers, family members, retirees, beneficiaries and staff.

The women's health clinic is outfitted with the state of the art equipment and furnishings to include exam tables that will take the patient's weight, corian countertop hands free faucets, compass space saving workstations, on the right track cubicle curtains with grommet hooks, motion censored lighting with dimmers, unisex toilets, baby changing stations and automatic card swipe access control just to name a few.

"Our providers and administrative staff understand we are charged with providing the best healthcare our Soldiers, families and veterans deserve and expect," said Col. Mark Higdon, Moncrief Army Community Hospital commander. "And this multi-million dollar clinic shows our dedication to ensuring our patients receive that care."
