The beautiful Lillian S. Wells Women’s Center at Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale provides critical patient services in a comfortable and relaxing spa-like environment.
Thousands of women in our community, especially those who are battling breast cancer, are benefiting from the generosity of the Lillian S. Wells Foundation. Within just the last few years, the Wells Foundation has contributed more than $5.5 million to the Broward Health Foundation to fund critical initiatives to help save women’s lives.
In 2009, the Wells Foundation gave $4.5 million for the creation of the 13,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Lillian S. Wells Women’s Health Center at Broward Health Medical Center. The Women’s Center provides life-saving tests and treatments in a spa-like atmosphere. It is staffed by renowned women’s healthcare specialists, and is equipped with today’s most advanced diagnostic and treatment equipment. It’s a new kind of healthcare center—one that treats the whole woman, not just individual symptoms, focusing on helping women lead healthy, happy, and fulfilling lives.
Recently, the Wells Foundation gave an additional $625,000 for the purchase of a breast Tomosynthesis system which helps to identify cancers earlier with greater accuracy and reduced x-ray exposure. This is just one more example of the continued generosity of the Wells Foundation and the impact their gifts are having on patients in our community.
