January 15, 2018 Madera California: Madera Community Hospital announces
Outpatient Center improvements.
Two phases of a multi-stage project in Madera Community Hospital’s
Outpatient Center have been completed. Installation of new medical imaging
technology and renovation of the x-ray room where completed in late December, 2017.
“The new diagnostic imaging equipment streamlines and advances the
capabilities of our outpatient medical imaging services,” said Karen
Paolinelli, FNP, Interim Chief Executive Officer, Madera Community Hospital.
“The x-ray equipment improves quality and efficiency for both patients
and referring providers,” Paolinelli added.
The state of the art diagnostic equipment drastically reduces image transfer
time while significantly improving the image quality. Along with the Radiologist’s
findings and report, the enhanced images serve as tools for patient communication
and an optimal treatment plan.
The Outpatient Center (OPC) also includes a blood draw station, two ultrasound
rooms and mammography. Additional project plans for OPC include enlarging
and remodeling the patient registration and waiting area and enhancing
breast diagnostic services.
