White-Wilson Medical Center Raises The Roof For New MRI 

For over 50 years, WWMC has demonstrated its commitment to the community and the future by consistently providing the most state-of-the-art technology available

FORT WALTON BEACH, FL—November 24, 2010— On November 30, 2010, at 10:00 A.M., White-Wilson will literally raise part of the roof of its MRI Center on the corner of Mar Walt and Hospital Drive to make way for its new Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanner. The new MRI is a Siemens Essenza, and White-Wilson is the first medical facility in the entire Northwest Florida region to have it. The new MRI offers advanced technology and increased patient comfort with a larger opening and shorter scan time. 

The new MRI continues White-Wilson’s tradition of providing this community with technology that is not typically available in a community this size. For example, White-Wilson was the first in the area to offer magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and an ultra-fast computerized tomography (CT) scanner, and is now bringing in this state-of-the-art new MRI. 
According to Dr. Douglas Rigby, President of the Board for White-Wilson Medical Center, “White-Wilson has been dedicated to providing comprehensive healthcare services to our community for over 50 years. As part of that commitment, White-Wilson is adding a new and improved MRI which allows our healthcare professionals to better diagnose and treat medical conditions non-invasively. We strive to be the community's choice for physician and healthcare services by continually improving our service to patients and their families.”

White-Wilson was also the first in the area to receive the coveted accreditation from the American College of Radiology for all of its modalities. This simply means that White-Wilson has the equipment, technology, quality and experienced staff to provide the highest level of Imaging care available. Director of Ancillary Practice Operations, Susan Shea, said “This technology will bring new and exciting procedures such as Breast MRI which is a proven tool that works in conjunction with Mammography to detect breast cancer in its’ earliest stage.” 

White-Wilson CEO, Alan Gieseman, said, “The new MRI is a reflection of our commitment to the future and this community. We pride ourselves in having some of the best physicians in the country, the latest technology and staff that truly cares about its patients.”
