Nathan Littauer Hospital ranked 8th busiest diagnostic Imaging Center
Gloversville, NY… Nathan Littauer Hospital was ranked by The Business Review as the 8th largest diagnostic imaging center in Capital Region and surrounding area. The inaugural list of “Diagnostic Imaging Centers” was published this week by the Albany-based Business Review, ranking imaging centers by total patient visits in 2008. Nathan Littauer Hospital reported 56,417 total patient visits in 2008.
The survey area included: Albany, Columbia, Fulton, Green, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Schoharie, Warren and Washington counties. “It is rewarding to see so many of our patients benefit from the world’s best technology right their own backyard.” stated Nathan Littauer’s CEO and President Laurence E. Kelly. He added, “In the past seven years, Nathan Littauer Hospital has made a commitment to deliver cutting-edge technology to our region. And we are delivering on that promise. Previously this technology was only available in major metropolitan areas.” The hospital recently also purchased the region’s only GE 64-slice CT scanner and a new Primus rehabilitation system.
Hospital spokesperson Cheryl McGrattan explains, “People have come to think of Nathan Littauer Hospital as a small hospital with big-city capabilities. Our increased numbers are reflecting that.” She added, “However, without the right doctors to interpret the images, diagnostic technology is merely gears, cables and wires. Our staff is our greatest asset, including the leadership of Dr. Sunjay Verma, Chief of Radiology, a nationally known radiologist.”
