Carrington Health Center's New Outpatient Wing
The Open House at Carrington Health Center on Wednesday, June 19th, featured a tour of their new Outpatient Wing. Participants were able to see all the changes that have taken place since the Holy Family Villa was dismantled. In place of the Villa, that area now houses offices and facilities, such as Central Dakota Physical Therapy, Cardiac Rehabilitation, Wellness and Disease Management, Diabetes Educators, Dietitians, Infection Control, Risk Management, Spiritual Care, Speech and Occupational Therapy,and Mercy Home Health and Hospice.
The newly furbished meeting rooms, offices and patient-care rooms were nicely decorated and furnished. As well, the greeting area for outpatient services was well designed, looking very efficient and welcoming.
Part of the tour included a visit to the Radiology section of the hospital where one could see the new digital mammography equipment and comfortable room updates. This was funded by a grant from the Harry B. and Leona M. Helmsley Trust.
After the tour, Dr. Page gave a presentation on varicose vein treatment. He explained the surgery that he does to treat varicose veins, and he answered questions from the audience.
Personally speaking, I think that Carrington is very lucky to have such a great health facility. Hopefully, it will continue to be located here in the future.
