Enhanced radiology wing unveiled

Family Health West has officially unveiled a newly enhanced radiology wing at its Fruita hospital.

The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and presentations on women’s health care services offered by Family Health West, including three-dimensional mammography.

“Our new radiology wing provides the best of technology, including 3D mammography, wide-bore MRI and digital X-ray,” said Mark Francis, president and chief executive officer of Family Health West. “We encourage everyone to come visit our hospital in Fruita to learn more about all of the services we provide to ensure the best care for our community.”

Three-dimensional mammography uses new technology to provide sharp breast tissue images that improve the ability to detect breast cancer as well as decrease the need for additional examinations.

Family Health West operates a hospital, outpatient care centers and assisted and skilled-care living facilities. For more information, call 858-2104 or visit www.familyhealthwest.org.
