Happy New Year! We hope you and your family had a great holiday. Last year was a very productive and busy year for the Radiology Department. Below is our year-end wrap up!
We also said goodbye to a few others. Drs. Steven Kraus and Bill O’Brien both left the department to pursue their interests. On the research side, Ron Pratt retired in March. Long-time technologist Jan Tiefermann retired in March as well after 40 years of service. Clinical Director Lois Curtwright retired, leaving her position as head of nursing in the Anesthesia Imaging Department, having co-worked with our Radiology MRI Division.
Our Hybrid OR celebrated their third year of success. A departmental collaboration between Surgery and Radiology has produced successful outcomes for our patients.
Near the end of the year, our clinical areas in the new hospital tower (G-Building) came to fruition. We now have new additions of X-ray, CT, MRI, and other radiology-related rooms to serve the new hospital Emergency area. A new and larger Radiology conference room was also added.
