Pam Scheppele (right), President, Jefferson Cary Foundation (JCF), Mary Harrigan (left), Executive Director JCF, and Dr. Shawn Laferrier, Medical Director – Radiology Department, Cary Medical Center recently visited the Fort Fairfield Rotary Club providing information and a presentation on the new Women’s Imaging Center at the Cary Medical Center facility.

Dr. Laferrier noted that in addition to new state-of-the-art equipment the facility takes a new approach to the patient-staff/facility interface that radically reduces the stress and anxiety that typically accompanies patient visits. The facility has been expanded to provide for easier check-in as well as providing a much more comfortable at-home environment. Additionally, the new state-of-the-art equipment reduces radiation exposure, provides clearer digital imaging, and makes it possible to provide almost real-time patient feedback.
