Shown in the image is the former Cardiopulmonary Services space located on the lower level of the hospital. Contractors have opened up the interior area to allow space to house the MRI machine and workspace for the MRI technologists.
Having MRI services will help to attract health care professionals to our organization and community. It will assist PSFDH in recruiting and retaining health care professionals allowing us to expand our services to our community.
MRI technology is a huge incentive when attracting and recruiting new healthcare professionals to our hospital. New graduates and young health care professionals expect that the organization they join will have state-of-the-art technology such as advance diagnostics. Medical students and residents in training see MRI as an essential tool. Having the service in place is also a tool that will support our current highly skilled staff and professional staff.
