Union County Hospital begins work on new MRI unit | Health
ANNA, IL (KFVS) - Union County Hospital is growing with a project two years in the making beginning to take shape.
The beginning stages of an MRI unit are beginning to take place along the East wall of the hospital.
Workers installed a 55 ton building Monday where the MRI machine will be placed next year.
This addition will bring convenience to community residents.
"We'll be able to take care of our patients' needs right here in Anna and the surrounding area," said Peter Worries, Union County Hospital Radiology Director. "Our patients will no longer need to travel to Cape Girardeau or Carbondale for their MRI scans."
The machine will be the third of its kind in the country.
