Community Hospitals of Williams County and Alpha Imaging: Delivering Personal Service in Northwest Ohio

When Community Hospitals of Williams County (CHWC) looked to replace diagnostic imaging equipment at their outpatient medical center they called on Alpha Imaging.

“The staff at Alpha Imaging demonstrates a genuine interest in meeting our imaging needs and advising us on our purchase decisions,” said Pam Alpaugh, Director of Imaging at CHWC.  “They offer a level of personal engagement not often seen from other companies in the industry.”

A not-for-profit community hospital system in Northwest Ohio, CHWC provides a wide-range of clinical services at three facilities; Bryan Hospital, Montpelier Hospital and Archbold Medical Center.  According to Alpaugh, “as a community hospital system serving a rural population in a 2,000 square mile area, we must deliver high levels of quality care at every point-of-service.   Our patients count on us to treat them quickly and effectively.  A partner like Alpha Imaging, who truly listens to us before proposing a solution, helps tremendously.”

Earlier this year, CHWC looked to expand their fluoroscopic imaging services at the Archbold Medical Center.  Having a significant installed base of Shimadzu imaging systems including R/F, DR rooms and mobiles, a new SonialVision fluoroscopic system was the ideal choice.  “We have had a great experience with the SonialVision product at Bryan Hospital and the support we receive from Alpha Imaging is second-to-none,” said Alpaugh.  “The team at Alpha goes “above and beyond” to get us operational quickly upon installation and maintains fantastic uptime.”

Shimadzu Medical Systems’ SonialVision multi-purpose digital R/F system provides excellent image quality and versatile patient positioning for a wide range of clinical applications.   “We perform a significant number of modified barium swallows for our speech therapy program.  But the system offers the flexibility to serve several clinical departments.  It is well-suited to meet the X-ray imaging needs of our community hospitals.”

Asked how likely she would be to recommend Alpha Imaging to a friend or colleague on a scale of one to 10 (10 being very likely), Alpaugh replied “definitely a 10.  I highly recommend the team at Alpha.”
