The center is now The Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center at Williamson Medical Center and was renamed for Cal Turner Jr. and his sister, Laura Dugas. The siblings' mother died of breast cancer in 1988, according to a release from the WMC.
“We had to support the important work the Breast Health Center is doing,” Turner said in the release.
The center, located 4601 Carothers Parkway, Ste. 150, Franklin, has been named a nationally recognized center of excellence and sees thousands of patients a year, according to the WMC.
“The Turner-Dugas Breast Health Center offers a highly-advanced program for diagnosing and treating virtually any breast health issue,” WMC CEO Donald Webb said in the release. “We offer patients the most advanced breast imaging technology available with an expert staff who offer compassionate, convenient care with rapid results. Our staff and physicians are committed to reducing patient anxiety and ensuring patients obtain information and answers as quickly as possible, often the same day.”
The center has also been recently expanded and renovated to include upgrades to existing technology such as new MRI machines and biopsy equipment.
