AMH 3D Mammography Earns High Rating

September 17, 2015 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

“The addition of our new 3D Tomosynthesis breast imaging this summer has been a great success,” said Rhonda Novak, BSRT (ARRT) (CT) radiology director. “We’ve received some very positive feedback from our patients as well as our radiologists and local practitioners. Plus, after only six weeks of using our GE SenoClaire Mammography Unit — we’re already seeing a decline in the number of callbacks for additional views.”
On September 1, the mammography department received a deficiency-free rating after undergoing the MQSA (Mammography Quality Standards Act) Inspection, added Novak. This is is the highest rating a mammography department may receive. This is very exciting for our department as well as Antelope Memorial Hospital and the communities we serve. Giving our patients the highest quality of care is the most important aspect of what we do here at AMH. Early detection of breast cancer is one of our highest priorities. Antelope Memorial Hospital is planning several promotions this fall to celebrate its new SenoClaire Tomography Unit. In September, AMH is giving “Identity Guard Wallets” to all patients having a mammogram. One of these wallets contains a certificate for a free 3D mammogram which may be used on the winner’s next exam.
On October 21, we are planning a “Women’s Night Out”, Novak said. Women are invited to have their mammogram done that evening and enjoy a glass of wine and hors d’oeuvres. In addition, every woman who has her mammogram in October will receive a free wine glass. It’s just our way of giving back to our patients and thanking them for their continued loyalty to our department and to Antelope Memorial Hospital.
For more information or to schedule your appointment today, call the AMH Radiology Department at (402) 887-6269.

St. Boniface Students To Give National Anthem Program At Community Center

September 10, 2015 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

On Friday, Sept. 11, St. Boniface School will participate in the American Public Education Foundation’s (APEF) annual singing of the National Anthem.
According to music instructor Rachel Becker, the students will present a 30-minute program on the Star-Spangled Banner at the Elgin Community Center beginning at 12:15 p.m. The public is invited to attend.
On that day, students are being asked to join together and simultaneously sing the National Anthem. That request is being made by the APEF which will provide free, educational resources on the words, meaning and history of the National Anthem.
The National Anthem movement began two years ago and asks students to unite and sing together.  There are numerous events taking place around the country.
“Getting students involved in learning the words and meaning of our nation’s anthem, as well as uniting as a country on 9/11 is powerful,” says Mia Toschi, Founder of the National Anthem Movement and APEF National Director of Strategic Partnerships. This year’s event concludes a year-long celebration commemorating the 200th birthday of the National Anthem and the foundation hopes to break the Guinness Book of World Records simultaneous sing-a-long of the National Anthem.
If the record is broken, an announcement will be made on Sept. 14, 2015.
