GREENE COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Officials with Greene County General Hospital celebrated the opening of several newly constructed facilities Wednesday.
The ribbon cutting marked the finish of a project that began with their groundbreaking 8 months ago in November of 2021.
The addition includes a new MRI suite, a new Ultrasound suite, and updated and expanded parking. According to officials, the MRI suite features state-of-the-art MRI technology designed to both give doctors good imaging, while also making the experience comfortable for patients.
“For the community, this means high-quality imaging. We’ve had our radiologist look at the images, they are impressed,” Radiology Director for GCGH Gina Fish said.
“Built into the respiratory table are respiratory sensors, so it detects when the patient breathes to get better imaging, clearer imaging for the radiologist. The head holder will adjust to patients’ head angles and make it much more comfortable for the patient,” Amie Heath the Radiologic Technologist and MRI Tech at GCGH said.
The parking area is still under construction, but nearing completion. The hospital has added four electric vehicle charging stations and hopes to add more in the future.
