WESTPORT, Conn. -- A 3D mammography and women's physical therapy center is bringing health into focus in Westport.
Ella Health has opened a new center in the heart of Westport. Ella Health "combines the most advanced technology available with highly skilled, caring staff to give patients personalized care in a comfortable setting that is more like a spa than a health care facility," representatives said in a press release.
“Our goal is to not only provide the best care to women but also to give them a significantly better experience and empower them to take charge of their health,” said Ella Health Chief Executive Officer Melissa Dyrdahl. “We are thrilled to be opening in Westport and looking forward to becoming a part of the community.”
Ella Health offers digital 3D mammography, "which improves breast cancer detection and reduces false positives that result in unnecessary call backs," according to the release.
"Along with the advanced technology, the center features warm cloth robes, private dressing rooms and heated exam rooms to make women more comfortable," representatives said. "Ella Health also offers convenient scheduling, on-time appointments and quick results, often within one business day."
Ella Health’s physical therapy programs for women focus on life events including pregnancy and postpartum, injury, surgery, cancer recovery, osteoporosis and pelvic health issues.
“Ella Health brings an innovative perspective to health care. Women are more likely to adhere to recommendations for mammography and other necessary medical care if it is in a warm spa-like environment, rather than the typical cold and intimidating health-care setting.” said Dr. Adam Ofer, of Avery Center for Obstetrics and Gynecology in Westport. “As a physician, I’m excited that my patients will have access to the most advanced mammography available in a setting that will encourage them to get the exam. I am also thrilled that we finally have a place to send our female patients for advanced physical therapy that specifically addresses the health needs of women in a proactive and noninvasive way."
Appointment requests can be made online at the Ella Health website.
