Bon Secours St. Francis Health, Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health
The Bon Secours St. Francis Health System turned to our firm to design the new Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health located in Greenville, SC. One of only four certified breast centers in the state, and the busiest in Greenville, the new 7,000 SF facility performs nearly 20,000 procedures each year.
Understanding the survivability linked with early detection and the importance of preventative care, the health system asked our team to create an uplifting, spa-like environment to facilitate more accessible screening and diagnostic programs for their patients.
Led by our Healthcare Studio, a collaborative planning approach involving physicians, nurses, technicians, and local women’s community groups culminated in a new space with a neutral color palette, bright accents, intuitive way-finding, subtle lighting, and the adornment of environmental photography. All of these design elements helped provide a sense of the nature and they reference the high-quality digital imaging of this particular clinical process. The Center’s state of the art technology includes mammography, ultrasound guided biopsy, densitometry, and stereotactic FNA.
