Trinitas Regional Medical Center, which officially became a member of RWJBarnabas Health in January, announced the unveiling of its newly expanded Nadine Brechner Interventional Radiology Suite June 22.
The Elizabeth hospital recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony and tours of the state-of-the-art facility. A dedication ceremony highlighted the career of Nadine Brechner, the former vice president and chief development officer of the Trinitas Health Foundation, for which the suite is named.
“The science behind radiation is complex and rapidly changing,” Gary Horan, Trinitas president and CEO, said in statement. “Through assistance in funding from the J.C. Kellogg Family Foundation and the Healthcare Foundation of New Jersey, Trinitas Regional Medical Center continues to raise the bar and provide access to the latest interventional radiation modalities for residents of Elizabeth and the surrounding community.”
The expanded suite features the Siemens Artis Zee technology, which will allow the health care team to perform minimally invasive procedures that can diagnose and treat conditions such as cancer, liver disease, cardiovascular disorders and gynecological issues.
Trinitas said the new system will reduce procedural time and “significantly decrease and reduce” radiation exposure to patients and staff.
Serving central New Jersey, Trinitas is a Catholic teaching medical center with Catholic oversight provided by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth.
