Reiarson Trust Purchases 3D Mammogram Machine

15 Aug 2018 News

An Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 29th from 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM for the community to tour the newly remodeled Physical Therapy Department and newly added 3D Mammogram unit.  Informational tours, demonstrations and door prizes will all be part of the fun!

In order to keep bringing services to our community, the Reiarson Trust donated money to the Mountrail County Medical Center to add a permanent 3-D mammogram machine inside the facility.  In doing so, MCMC was able to purchase one of only three Mammomat Revelation 3-D mammogram machines in the United States.

“The Reiarson Trust is very specific on what it can spend its money on,” says Derald Hoover, President of the Stanley Community Hospital Board.  “We cannot help with operations at all for the hospital or clinic, but we can aid them by purchasing different equipment for the facility.  With this machine now in place, residents of the community can stay here for this service.  That means a better bottom line for the Mountrail County Medical Center.”

“Getting a Mammogram is a unique opportunity, because it allows for early detection or peace of mind,“ states lead Mammography Technologist, Beth Johnson, RT, (R) (M).  “We, here at MCMC, are so thankful for the Reiarson Trust and its ability to allow us to have such a sophisticated piece of equipment in our facility.”

Along with the addition of the mammogram room, the Reiarson Trust paid for the remodel of the Physical Therapy Department.

“As we increase our services, such as dry needling and LSVT Big ®, we needed more room to work with our patients, “says Physical Therapist Manager Janae Maier.  “We now have three private treatment rooms to continue with our evolving treatment options.  The Physical Therapy team is excited to have all this new space to work with.”

Hours for radiology services are Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.  The mammogram schedule will vary as we start up this service.  Please call 628-2424, extension 129 to check availability and schedule an appointment.  Hours for the Physical Therapy Department are Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM also.  To schedule an appointment please call 628-2424, extension 146.

We thank you for your continued support.  Nobody takes care of you like your own.
