BMH restores MRI services

BRATTLEBORO — Brattleboro Memorial Hospital reopened its diagnostic imaging department's upgraded magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite Nov. 26, following the hospital's planned move of its MRI equipment to accommodate renovations and expansion of the emergency department.

According to Marcy Rushford, director of BMH's radiology and cardiology unit, the MRI unit's new location, on the ground floor of the Richards Building, was designed with patients' physical and emotional comfort in mind.

“The new location provides a quieter, more welcoming environment of care for patients. The upgraded equipment includes a faster, quieter magnet with greater diagnostic capabilities than we had previously, and the improved image quality will help ensure quality diagnostic results,” Rushford said.
