BMH Restores MRI Services

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital officials announced the Diagnostic Imaging Department began seeing patients in its upgraded Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) suite on Monday, November 26.

Launch of the new service follows the hospital’s planned move of its MRI equipment to accommodate renovations and expansion of the Emergency Department. The new location, on the ground floor of the Richards Building, was designed with attention to both the physical and emotional comfort of the patients says Marcy Rushford, Director of the Radiology and Cardiology Unit at BMH.

“The new location provides a quieter, more welcoming environment of care for patients,” says Rushford. “The upgraded equipment includes a faster, quieter magnet with greater diagnostic capabilities than we had previously, and the improved image quality will help ensure quality diagnostic results.”
