Heads back to North Pole after same-day results
Amid final preparations for another busy holiday season, Mrs. Claus made
a stop at Boca Raton Regional Hospital for her annual mammogram. Santa’s
better half underwent her screening inside the SensorySuite by GE Healthcare,
an interactive mammography experience designed to stimulate the senses
of sight, smell and hearing with three unique environmental ambiances.
The Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute at
Boca Regional is the first in Florida to offer the SensorySuite, in which
women can choose to have their mammogram surrounded by a virtual beach,
garden or waterfall to help alleviate any perceived discomfort, pain or
anxiety from the screening.
Ever the snowbird, Mrs. Claus selected the ‘beach” sensory
experience. She was also excited about the Institute’s same-day
results, which meant she could head right back up to the North Pole before
her husband awoke from his afternoon power nap.
“We’re delighted that Mrs. Claus chose us as the destination
program for her mammogram,” said Kathy Schilling, MD, Medical Director
of The Christine E. Lynn Women’s Health & Wellness Institute
at Boca Regional. “By stopping by today, Mrs. Claus set a great
example for women everywhere — no matter how busy we may think we
are, there’s always time to schedule this important annual screening.”
