The radiology department at Jefferson County Health Center offers a variety of imaging services to meet the needs of our patients and community. The department is staffed to provide 24-hour coverage, 365 days a year.
Whether you are an outpatient or are admitted as a patient in the hospital, the radiology department works closely with your physician to provide diagnostic testing to you. Results are sent to your physician as soon as possible so that he/she may discuss them with you and continue your care in the most appropriate manner.
The radiology staff is composed of highly trained and qualified licensed radiographers. All technologists are registered with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and many sub-specialize in other areas of imaging services.
A board certified radiologist works with Jefferson County Health Center as a contracted service to provide all interpretative results and to perform all necessary procedures requiring a radiologist's expertise.
Services are provided to our patients on a regular basis with equipment in the hospital or by utilizing the convenience of several mobile services on a scheduled basis.
All out-patient services provided are done on a scheduled basis with the order from your physician or health care practitioner.
The Mammography Assistance Program is designed to assist underinsured and uninsured women in Jefferson County.
Since many examinations require a different preparation, instructions will be given to you at the time your exam is scheduled. If the instructions are straightforward, they will be relayed to you by your physician or nurse. If the instructions require a preparation kit or are more complicated, you will be sent to the radiology department to pick up instructions and/or a preparation kit.
Results will be sent directly to your physician or health care provider. If you are an in-patient in the hospital, the results will also be sent to the nursing unit to be placed with your chart for physician review. Your physician or nurse will then relay the results to you.
If you are referred elsewhere for follow-up or specialized care, your images can be checked out to you on a loan basis with a signed patient release. Please remember that your films are a part of your permanent medical record at Jefferson County Health Center and need to be returned to us.
