Radiology Technologists and Nurses
Among the areas that set BHS radiology services apart is the experience and advanced education of our radiology technologists and nurses. Our team is comprised largely of a group of seasoned professionals who found their niche in radiology services and have worked hard to maintain the tough standards and educational requirements of their profession. They are on the front lines of patient care at each of our radiology sites, and are committed to a "patient friendly" atmosphere.
Our technologists have two and four year degrees of formal training and some have master's degrees. To maintain their license, they must attend continuing education every year for each of the diagnostic modalities in which they are certified.
It is rare in a health system our size to have a full complement of Registered Nurses assigned exclusively to the Radiology Department. Their role includes developing and managing a care plan to help patients understand procedures, starting IVs, and assisting with interventional radiology procedures. Above all, radiology nurses at BHS are immediately on hand for any medical emergencies.
