“Women look for a place to seek certain imaging tests such as mammograms in a private setting, something we now offer with this expansion,” Houseman said.
The new Women’s Radiology Center was designed with patient privacy in mind.
In phase two of the project, the registration desk will also allow patients to interact with registrars while still maintaining their privacy. Along with the new waiting area, there is a new entry/exit point for Emergency Department and inpatients coming to the center for testing. In the past, these inpatients would interact with outpatients sitting in the waiting area; now they will have appropriate privacy upon arrival to the facility.
The Women’s Radiology Center was made possible through the generosity of the Mercy Memorial Hospital Association which through a $600,000 contribution funded in part the first phase and will fully fund the second phase.
“We are fortunate to be providing health care in the Urbana community,” Houseman adds. “Our community is what drives our investment, our innovation but most importantly, our mission.”
