New $8.5 million breast health centre to open in New Brunswick in late 2014

MONCTON, N.B. - The New Brunswick government is spending $8.5 million to construct a breast care centre in Moncton.

Health Minister Madeleine Dube says the two-storey addition to the Dr. Georges L. Dumont University Hospital will allow for the consolidation of breast health services.

Services will be offered in both languages and will include screening, diagnostic imaging, clinical exam, surgery and therapeutic services.

The new centre is scheduled to open in the fall of 2014.
