Washington County Hospital is hosting a Blood Drive on Tuesday, March 2nd, from 12 noon to 6 p.m. Changes to our process will now include requirement to schedule an appointment. You may call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or visit RedCrossBlood.org and enter: WaCoHospital to schedule your appointment. It is recommended to complete the Rapid Pass to help streamline your donation experience. You can complete this on the Red Cross Blood Donor App or online at RedCrossBlood.org/RapidPass. When you arrive you will need to wear a face mask, and if you do not have one, one will be provided. The Blood Drive will be in the lower level conference rooms of the hospital. The best entrance would be the Education Entrance on the South East corner of the hospital. Please come and join us. Each pint donated can save up to 3 lives!
Washington County Hospital is now participating in the American College of Radiology (ACR) Lung Cancer Screening Registry.
Participation in the registry is voluntary and allows our imaging facility to compare its lung cancer screening performance to other facilities nationwide. Our doctors and staff can use these objective comparisons to advance our lung cancer screening practice, target specific areas for improvement, implement quality improvement programs, and improve patient care.
Contact your primary care provider if you have questions or would like to know if you qualify for the Lung Cancer Screening program.
The ACR Lung Cancer Screening Registry (LCSR) is approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to meet Medicare quality reporting requirements. As part of the ACR National Radiology Data Registry (NRDR®), the LCSR leads the effort in developing benchmarks and comparisons to help imaging facilities improve quality of patient care.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is a professional medical society dedicated to serving patients and society by empowering radiology professionals to advance the practice, science, and professions of radiological care.
In recognition of National Primary Care Week, WCH would like to thank the Primary Care Providers in the WCH Medical Group. Our providers are an important component in our community’s health and well-being. Your primary care provider is your best investment for better health!
