(Riverton, Wyo.) - This morning SageWest Riverton Health Care received a brand new 1.5 Tessla GE MRI machine. Around 10:00 a.m. a crane moved the machine into the new edition of the hospital building.
Mike Puttkammer, Director of Imaging Services told County 10 this morning, "SageWest is now able to provide the community with a full service Imagery Department." Along with the MRI imagery, the department offers mammography, ultrasounds, bone density imagery, among other services.
Puttkammer noted the machine will be up and running by mid-July, and SageWest will soon be hiring one 'Experienced MRI Technician.' This job listing will be posted in the near future.
WATCH the MRI machine being moved this morning.
