Passavant Area Hospital’s Employee of the Month is Deanna Seymour, Two South.

Deanna is a certified nurse assistant and works on the Two South nursing unit. She’s been employed at Passavant two years.

“My responsibilities include communicating effectively between staff and patients, providing hands-on care to patients, promoting a safe work environment, and providing quality care,” Deanna said.

Her nomination form from a grateful patient read, “Deanna took such great care of me while I was in the hospital. She always cared for my needs and made me as comfortable as possible. She was also very professional at her job and also made my husband comfortable while he stayed with me. There was never a time that I felt unsafe with Deanna’s care. She always made sure to hang on to me while I was walking. If I was scared, she made sure to comfort me with such kind words and we shared stories about riding motorcycles. If I were to ever be hospitalized again at Passavant, I would ask for Deanna right away.

Deanna resides in Jacksonville.

MRI.Passavant.webPassavant Area Hospital is on the cutting edge of technology upgrades to its Imaging Services Department. New equipment and software have been added to improve the level of care in Imaging Services.

A new feature has been added for CT scans that allows for a lower dose of radiation during the scan. These scans are commonly used for the screening, diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to bones, organs and tissues. The procedure uses a computer to produce exceptionally detailed, three-dimensional, cross-sectional images of inside the body.
Passavant has a new 1.5 Tesla Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit. An MRI scan is one of the most sophisticated diagnostic tools available to help a clinician understand the cause of a particular health issue. The MRI scanner uses a very high strength magnet. A patient lies in the magnet and a radio wave is used to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. The new MRI has a much larger opening than previous units which contributes significantly to reducing patient anxiety and increasing patient comfort.

For women’s breast health, Passavant has recently added digital breast tomosynthesis, also known as 3D mammography. This is a revolutionary new screening and diagnostic breast imaging tool to improve the early detection of breast cancer. This can be done with no additional time or discomfort to the patient.

Clinical Radiologists now provide minimally invasive image-guided diagnosis and treatment of diseases in many organ systems. These radiologists use x-rays, ultrasound and CT guidance to perform tissue sampling, abscess drainages and catheter placement. Today, many conditions that once required surgery can be treated less invasively by interventional radiologists. Interventional radiology treatments offer less risk, less pain and less recovery time compared to open surgery.

The use of these new technologies allows for an elevated level of care for patients at Passavant Area Hospital.
