New and noteworthy in 2020 Diagnostic imaging staff celebrating the completed installation of our new CT scanner and patient-lift system are, from left, Paul Landby, Christine Wood (in the patient lift), Amra Harmanson and Jeri Whitnell. Clinic Manager Char Hancock helps out at a drive-up flu-vaccination clinic, which was held at all three of our family medicine clinics in 2020. This was new for us and proved to be very successful.
