    Passavant Plans for Radiation Therapy in 2017

    • August 18, 2016
    Passavant Area Hospital, in collaboration with the Regional Cancer Center at Memorial Medical Center, is adding radiation therapy to its list of patient services. Beginning in March 2017, cancer patients will receive radiation therapy treatments in the facility, located at 567 North Westgate, on the Passavant campus. This service will facilitate patients working with the clinical team at Regional Cancer Center at Memorial Medical Center to develop their individualized care plan.  Once the plan has been created, the patient can receive their ongoing radiation treatment needs at Passavant Area Hospital. “This approach provides greater access, ease and comfort for the patient during this very difficult time.  They will have the support and availability of this service right here in Jacksonville, while working in partnership with the talented clinical staff of the Regional Cancer Center,” said Doug Rahn, president and chief executive officer at Passavant Area Hospital. The facility will feature a new linear accelerator that will provide the latest technology in radiation therapy.  Radiation therapy is the use of high-energy radiation to damage cancer cells’ DNA and destroy their ability to divide and grow. The radiation therapy is delivered via the accelerator or via radioactive sources placed inside the patient. Radiation therapy can also help reduce pain and suffering in patients with advanced cancer.

    Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Shanna Smith, Three South. Shanna is a registered nurse on the Three South nursing unit and has been employed for four years. “As a registered nurse, I collaborate with the other health care team members to provide great care to our patients,” she said. Her nomination from an appreciative co-worker read, “Over the past week, Three South has experienced two critical situations during the night shift. With each event, Shanna Smith excelled in her job as an RN. She took charge of the situations, even when neither of the patients were assigned to her. She made all the right calls and it is because of her that everything went so smoothly. Shanna proved to be a gifted and knowledgeable nurse and showed outstanding leadership. When the patient’s family member arrived during the patient transport, Shanna stepped up, took the reins and was very consoling. I would trust her with any patient, any time. Passavant and Three South are lucky to have such a wonderful and compassionate nurse. Her hard work and dedication are appreciated.” Shanna and her husband, Kenny, are the parents of one child. The family resides in Winchester.
