New Radiology Services Available At Ottauquechee Health Center

Woodstock— A new mobile MRI unit is now available every other Wednesday at Ottauquechee Health Center, which is part of Mt. Ascutney Hospital.

The technology can be used at the health center regardless of where patients get their primary or specialty care, according to a news release from the hospital. The hours of access may be expanded, according to need.

The hospital also is installing a digital X-ray system at Ottauquechee Health Center. The system, expected to go online in a few weeks, offers sharper images, lower radiation exposure and streamlined integration of digital information into a patient’s electronic medical records, the release said. Like with the MRI services, patients requiring X-ray services can bring their orders from their provider to the health center, rather than traveling outside their community to get the images taken, even if they do not receive their primary care at the facility, Terri DeMond, radiology manager at Mt. Ascutney Hospital, said in an email.

The addition of the mobile MRI unit and digital x-ray system is part of the hospital’s ongoing mission to bring advanced medical technology to patients in the rural communities it serves, Gay Landstrom, the hospital’s interim CEO, said in the release.

The hospital was founded in order to provide fast, easy access to state-of-the-art care to people living in small towns, Landstrom said. “We’re proud to offer these lifesaving technologies so close to home.”

Physician Joins APD Primary Care

Lebanon — Dr. Deborah Glazer has joined Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital’s primary care facility.

Glazer has been practicing on the APD campus since 1985 as an independent provider and began seeing patients as an employed physican earlier this fall, according to a news release from the hospital.

Glazer earned her bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Albany and her medical degree from Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, N.Y. She completed St. Clare’s Family Practice Residency Program in Schenectady, N.Y.

“I’m happy that Deb has joined our team,” said Dr. Brian Lombardo, medical director at the APD Primary Care practice. “Her addition will add even greater depth to our ability to deliver family care, and we are pleased to assist her in continuing to care for the longstanding patients in her practice. We will continually work hard to make them feel welcome here.”
