They say good things come in small packages. That’s clearly the case at Massac Memorial Hospital, an award-winning critical access hospital in Metropolis, Ill., with 25 beds. But far from quaint, this small facility is cutting edge.
Here you’ll find a highly skilled, compassionate staff along with comprehensive advanced imaging technologies that are raising the bar for patient care in their rural community.
The hospital serves patients in Massac County and the surrounding areas. Far too many rural communities lack access to the latest medical technology. But Massac Memorial prides itself on going the extra mile — so patients don’t have to.
“Our goal is to be able to provide top-notch healthcare to the people in our community so they can get it here at home and not have to drive to larger cities to get what they need,” said Janet Vannatter, Chief Operating Officer of Massac Memorial Hospital. “To meet that goal, we had to get the best possible equipment and that’s why we turned to Fujifilm Healthcare Americas Corporation for the very latest in diagnostic imaging systems.”
Massac Memorial Hospital recently installed Fujifilm’s SCENARIVA View CT Scanner, OASIS Velocity high-field open MRI, D-EVO Suite II X-ray Suite, FDR Go PLUS portable x-ray unit, and Persona RF fluoroscopy room. It has proudly maintained a 5-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the last 6 years, and holds the distinction of being the region’s only 5-star rated hospital.
