National Radiologic Technology Week® Kicks Off Nov. 8

FORT BENNING, GA - Providing patients with safe medical imaging examinations and radiation therapy treatments is the prime goal for the nation’s radiologic technologists.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, radiologic technologists have been on the front lines of diagnosing and caring for patients along with doctors and nurses. These patients have required chest x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound exams for blood clots, MRI and Nuclear Medicine studies to help them through the often lengthy and complicated diagnosis and recovery period of the disease.

Medical imaging and radiation therapy professionals work with some of the most innovative equipment in the medical field to help identify pathologies, plan and administer treatment and restore patient health. R.T.s specialize in breast imaging, computed tomography, cardiac-interventional procedures, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiation therapy and general diagnostic radiology.

To recognize the vital work of its R.T.s, Martin Army Community Hospital is celebrating National Radiologic Technology Week, November 8-14, 2020. The Department of Radiology will host a number of activities to celebrate and thank its staff of radiologic technologists as well as its radiologists and support staff.

NRTW was created by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) in 1979. The event is celebrated each year during the week of Nov. 8, the day that German physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen discovered the x-ray in 1895.

The ASRT represents more than 152,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy. The Society is the largest radiologic science association in the world. Its mission is to advance and elevate the medical imaging and radiation therapy profession and to enhance the quality and safety of patient care.

Army’s Best of the Best: Ms. Ruby Ramos
From Martin Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

FORT BENNING, GA – The Defense Health Agency (DHA) recognized Medical Support Assistant (MSA) Ruby Ramos as ranking among the Army’s Best of the Best. Ms. Ramos’ smiling face is often the first thing patients see at Fort Benning’s Martin Army Community Hospital’s (BMACH) Dermatology Clinic. She scored 100% patient satisfaction on the Joint Outpatient Experience Survey (JOES) from April 1 through June 30 because she goes above and beyond when it comes to patient-centered care.

Deputy Commander for Clinical Services Col. Joshua Will praised Ramos, “it is truly a credit to you that you make sure all the patients are happy by the time they see their doctor. The front desk staff is the face of our organization and I wish we had the ability to clone people because I would take a clone of you and put you in front of every desk.”

For her part, Ramos credited her team, “I work with the best doctors. I get to know my patients on a personal level. I just sincerely love my job, I don’t really want any awards.” Ever the MSA, Ramos said she will celebrate her DHA recognition… her second by the way… not by going out to dinner, but by completing her referral list.

Soldier Recovery Unit: Graduating with Honors
From Martin Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

FORT Benning, GA - Staff Sgt. Kevin Reese epitomizes the saying “It’s never too late.” The 57-year-old assigned to Ft. Benning’s Soldier Recovery Unit graduated magna cm laude from American Military University which is a member of the accredited American Public University System on October 1. To receive his degree “with great distinction" Reese maintained a 3.4+ GPA.

This is the non-commissioned officer’s second college degree. Reese started pursuing his interdisciplinary studies degree with a focus on education and sciences in 2012. He hopes his dedication and hard work to achieve his goals will help motivate others to do the same.

Reese is no stranger to adversity. While on active duty and studying online, he injured his neck and back at Ft. Bliss. This led to behavioral and physical complications which required him to be medevaced to Ft. Benning for surgery in October 2018.

His recovery at Benning’s SRU allowed Reese to never leave things undone. Even though he just graduated magna cm laude, he is not resting on his laurels. Now, Reese is only one semester away from obtaining his elementary K-8 education degree. The Mobile, Alabama native plans to return to his hometown to share his love of science with future generations.

Brigadier General Paula Lodi visits Martin Army Community Hospital
From Martin Army Community Hospital Public Affairs

FORT BENNING, GA - How many pounds of German Shepherd does it take to stop a person in his/her tracks? One hundred and two. Brigadier General Paula Lodi found that out today during her visit to Fort Benning. The commander of the Regional Health Command Atlantic toured Benning’s Veterinary Center and Military Police working dog kennel, after meeting with key team leaders at Martin Army Community Hospital.

Rudo and his handler, Sgt. Austin Moore showed off the patrol certified dog’s attack skills. And attack he did. The 4-year-old demonstrated several running assaults designed to take down suspects. Rudo is trained to bite and hold. He is also trained to detain and escort. The headstrong German Shepherd eagerly demonstrated both commands on the less than eager safety suited target.

Rudo is detection certified to sniff out drugs. His 6-year-old counterpart Melinda is also detection certified, but trained to alert on explosives. Melinda’s handler Cpl. Tristan Bivens put the Belgian Malinois through her paces, in an exhibition of obedience and athletic agility for the brigadier general. Melinda displayed her sweeping skills, methodically pacing left and right with the canine efficiency and phenomenal nose required to safely sniff out bombs.

During Lodi’s visit, Kennel Master Sgt. 1st Class Gloria Greenidge highlighted the benefits of their $1.9 million dollar facility. The current kennel now features 25 runs, with separate indoor, outdoor and sleeping areas for each working dog. It was built after a 2011 tornado ripped the aluminum roofing off the former facility. Greenidge admitted the multi-million dollar build is a vast improvement, but the incredible care the Veterinary Center offers the working dogs is what makes their mission possible. Greenidge said "even if they have to call in the middle of the night, the veterinarians offer their unwavering support."

The brigadier general took the time to offer words of encouragement to the women and men who may one day be answering those middle of the night phone calls. During her tour of the Veterinary Center, the Distinguished Military Graduate of Rutgers University ROTC program dropped in on Benning’s newest class of interns. Lodi advised the First Year Graduate Veterinary Education captains to keep their minds open to all the possible ways to serve. The brigadier general also said to pay attention to their military instructors to learn what it’s like being a soldier leader when the interns become officers in charge of their own vet clinics.

Branch Chief Maj. Rachel Lawrence told Lodi the Veterinary Center offers top-notch preventive, surgical and dental care to around 4500 installation pets. Lawrence admitted taking care of the Military working dogs is the best part of her job. She said "It is an honor to treat the canine warriors who save lives every day, by protecting our installation and our service members."

Thank you, thank you, thank you for an efficient and convenient flu shot clinic!!! The Soldiers running the entry table were professional, patient and ready to serve. We sincerely appreciate the out of the box thinking and making a process that takes care of families over just doing what’s always been done 🙌 Kudos MACH!
I would like to congratulate you all on the most efficient medication pick up I've ever seen at any pharmacy! Due to Covid, I was able to get in a car line with 30 cars in front of me and have my prescription distributed to me in a whopping 10 minutes. The soldiers that are doing that job are excellent. I love the way the doctors are able to call in the prescription to the pharmacy, then the pharmacy calls the patient, gives them a pick up time and it all works seamlessly. This is the biggest upgrade in pharmacy prescription refills I have ever seen. I hope when Covid is over, it continues. It is a wonderful service. PS I tried to submit an ICE comment but the site won't submit...
If you have something seriously wrong with you, i don't suggest going to MARTIN ARMY ER for answers. Nurse and doctor could CLEARLY see i have something going on in my foot/leg and cannot walk. Was told they'd give me a shot for pain and some motrin to take home but to follow up with my PCM. They didn't give me an ultrasound to make sure it wasn't a clot, they didn't give me an xray, nothing.(the doctor literally spent 2.5 minuets in the room) They told me that since I couldn't tell them of a physical injury that may have cause it there was no need for an xray. I told them I didn't want the shot, that I wanted an xray instead and since they couldn't do that for me i wanted to leave. Cant even get into see my Primary until Friday. The lump that is on my leg is growing, getting warmer & making it to where I cannot move my foot at all without crying. 2 hours later and the lump is growing with increasing pain. Thanks for freaking nothing.
Soldiers that are being tested for COVID are being told that its 7-10 business days to get results. A week or so ago soldiers were being told 2-3 days. Why this sudden change? Soldiers need results sooner, not longer.
How do I pick up prescriptions that my doctor from off post sent electronically to the pharmacy on Thursday May 21?
Happy EMS week Fort Benning EMS!
