Hospice of Monroe County

Hospice care is not just for people who have cancer.  Many people who receive hospice care may have cancer, while others may have heart disease, dementia/Alzheimer's disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or kidney failure.

Radiology
We have a 16 row low radiation CT scanner that provides a higher level of diagnostic capability to their physicians caring for patients in the inpatient, outpatient or emergency setting.  This scanner offers enhanced pictures of the brain and vascular anatomy allowing for quicker diagnosis of a stroke or hemorrhage, thus enabling the medical team to treat such events in a more streamlined manner that have ultimately saved lives.

Our scanner can deliver up to 40 percent lower radiation exposure than similar scanners without diminishing the quality of the study, which is better for all patients, especially children.

MCH Radiology is also proud to have added a new digital mammography modality in 2014, which allows our team of caring professionals to better serve women's health care needs.  Digital mammography seems similar on the surface to many patients but most admit it is much quicker than the traditional mammography and many patients say it is more comfortable than the traditional mammography.

Surgery
We have inpatient and outpatient surgical services including: obstetrics, orthopedics, gynecology, endoscopy and colonoscopies.
