The Memorial Advantage

Imagine - a local hospital with friendly, qualified professionals and state-of-the-art technology! The Memorial Advantage is everything you'd expect from your health care provider - a trusting, loving, caring approach to each individual patient. But Memorial is more than that, too. We combine advanced technology, a professional staff and an unsurpassed facility that allows for privacy, efficiency and effectiveness in health care treatment. Whether you're a patient or a visitor, we're committed to a quality experience for you. We call it - the Memorial Advantage.

Technology

Advanced care begins with advanced technology. The New Memorial Hospital is one of the most technologically advanced medical facilities in the region. Patients benefit from technology in many ways, including faster test times, more accurate diagnosis and treatment, and overall improved comfort and recovery. With our advanced 64 slice CT, ultrasound, digital mammography and PACS digital archiving system, we're leading the way in patient-focused care through technology. That's our commitment at Memorial Hospital.

64 Slice CT

Non-invasive imaging technologies continue to revolutionize medicine. And leading the way is the 64 slice CT scanner at Memorial Hospital. Used by major hospitals across America, Memorial’s CT scanner has the most advanced technical innovations available to improve patient comfort and safety with uncompromised performance.
The scanner produces high-speed, high-resolution imaging - 64 simultaneous slices of 0.5mm, the thinnest available. The result of the scan is three dimensional pictures that allow experts to pinpoint areas for treatment with remarkable accuracy.

Digital Mammography

It's a proven fact: with early detection, the mortality rate of breast cancer is reduced significantly. This is why Memorial Hospital uses innovative digital technology to meet the highest standards in mammography. This means short examination times for patients, more accurate screening and diagnosis capabilities and easy storage and transmission of records.
 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound technology is not what it used to be! That's why at Memorial, our new ultrasound equipment is keeping pace with the expanding and changing needs of the diagnostic lab. Reduced exam time, increased comfort and improved diagnostic results - those are the benefits to our patients with a comprehensive range of 3D views and clarity.
 

Efficiency

It's true! The physical layout of a hospital can have a significant impact on patient care. That's why at Memorial, our emergency room, imaging, surgery and other critical care areas are closely linked. We're efficient when efficiency matters.
Take the OB area. We provide a range of birthing options that meet with the wishes of every couple. In case of complications, our OB area is linked to imaging and surgical suites. It's all a part of patient-focused care that adds an extra level of safety and security for our patients.

 

Privacy

When you think of a private hospital room, perhaps you think of increased cost. That's not the case at Memorial where every patient room is a private room. But our patient rooms are more than just private. They're comfortable, for the patient and visitors.
Each room features a large window and a 7 foot window seat. There's plenty of room for long visits. And each room has a private bath.

 

Effectiveness

Quality care and a quality medical experience. From the moment a patient registers (or pre-registers on-line!) to the day of dismissal, Memorial Hospital provides an exceptional health care experience for patients and visitors.
As part of this commitment, you might notice amenities you've never seen before in a hospital. We offer wireless Internet access, and you won't see a lot of paper. Our electronic medical records and archiving communication systems are the most current available. The result is more accuracy and cost-effectiveness. It's all part of the Memorial Advantage.
