Giving so others can learn... Rad-Tech program receives equipment

A recent donation to Meridian Community College’s Radiologic Technology Program could be described as a gift that keeps on giving.  Anderson Regional Medical Center donated usedSiemens Radiographic equipment to the College for students to gain valuablehands-on experience as they prepare for positions in entry-level radiography.  

The unit was recently in use at the hospital, explained Dale Holyfield, director of radiology at ARMC. MCC President Dr. Scott Elliott added the very valuable donation offers a “seamless transition from here to the real world.”

“This really strengthens our own program,” Elliott added.

The mission of the Meridian Community College Radiologic Technology Program is to prepare competent, entry-level radiographers able to function within the healthcare community.  A large component of training is hands-on lab practice that prepares students for clinical experience in affiliated healthcare settings.  MCC has been fortunate to have two active labs and a portable x-ray machine for students to safely practice radiographic procedures.  This gift replaces a much older machine that is no longer representative of today’s equipment, so there is little difference between lab practice and clinical practice.    

Holyfield said the College trains a majority of their radiological technologists that Anderson employs. “We find the technologists are well-trained and continually meet our needs.  The program supports us and we want to support it,” he said.

Congestive heart failure affects over 5 million Americans each year, with symptoms resulting in debilitating fatigue, shortness of breath and dependent edema, all of which limit lifestyle choices and can cause frequent hospitalizations.

Anderson CHF Management Center offers a valuable service to patients with congestive heart failure by providing education and close follow-up.  The CHF Management Center staff, led by Wesley S. Bennett, MD, FACC, and Joan Griffin, RN, BS, closely monitors weight and fluid intake, makes adjustment to medications if needed, administers IV medications and provides dietary counseling, all with physician direction.  This treatment program is designed to improve the quality and length of life for patients with CHF.  

“Anderson CHF Management Center is another example of our mission to improve the lives of the people we serve,” said Ray Humphreys, President and CEO of Anderson. “This is a service that we are proud to bring to the people of Meridian and the surrounding region,” said John Anderson, Vice President of Anderson- South.
