Massac Memorial Hospital Upgrades Imaging Services with Fujifilm Technology

METROPOLIS, Ill., January 30, 2023-- Massac Memorial Hospital, an award winning 25-bed facility based in Metropolis, Illinois, now offers advanced imaging services with a full portfolio of diagnostic imaging technologies from FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation, a leading provider of diagnostic and enterprise imaging solutions. The equipment includes tools such as digital X-ray, computed tomography (CT), and MRI to facilitate diagnosis. "This community is Massac Memorial's first priority," Massac Memorial CEO Lennis Thompson says. "And we are always looking for better ways to serve it. Our new Fujifilm technology will allow us to offer patients the best possible imaging. That means fewer people will have to travel to get diagnosed, and, ultimately, more people will have access to quality care." The hospital has purchased products including Fujifilm's FDR Go PLUS portable X-ray system, D-EVO Suite II X-ray room, FDR Persona RF PREMIUM radiography fluoroscopy system, SCENARIA View CT system, and the OASIS Velocity Open MRI system. Browns Medical Imaging, Fujifilm's channel partner, and Fujifilm will maintain the equipment. "Access to imaging services is crucial for diagnosis and treatment of diseases. We're grateful to Massac Memorial for recognizing Fujifilm's innovative diagnostic imaging solutions and partnering with us so that patients in Massac County now have access to the latest advanced medical technologies," said Shawn Etheridge, executive director of modality solutions marketing, FUJIFILM Healthcare Americas Corporation.
