University of Maryland Shore Regional Health hosted a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Clark Comprehensive Breast Center on Wednesday, June 29.

In its newly expanded location, at 10 Martin Court in Easton, the Center is named in recognition of a $5 million gift from The Clark Charitable Foundation, a private philanthropic organization funded by the A. James Clark Family. The expansion was part of a $6.5 million renovation project at UM Shore Regional Health’s Diagnostic and Imaging Center, housed at that same location.

The 16-month project, which began in February, 2015, was completed in three phases and in addition to the expansion of the Breast Center to its new location, encompassed all laboratory and imaging spaces.

An employee appreciation event was held on Thursday, June 30 to recognize Diagnostic and Imaging Center and Breast Center team members for their hard work, cooperation and dedication during the renovation project.
