Other questions we asked Anna:

What led you to choose Salem Township Hospital?
As a student, I performed my clinical rotations here. I liked the small-town feel and being close to home. When I took this position, my mother was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I felt this was my place to be. In hopes that I could make a positive impact on my patients.

What is the best thing about your job?
I am part of a fantastic team. I get to work with some excellent ultrasound technologists and radiologists. By working together, we can give our patients exceptional care.

Breast Imaging is always evolving. When I began working in mammography, we used screen film. Since then we have gone to digital imaging – and now we are 3D. At Salem Township Hospital we utilize the most up-to-date technology and techniques to serve our patients.

How do you typically spend your leisure time?
I enjoy going to my three girls’ activities, which include cheerleading, FFA, travel softball, volleyball, and livestock shows.

What do you want people to know about Salem Township Hospital?
Salem Township Hospital continues to grow and provide the most up-to-date and compassionate care for our patients. We continue to update equipment. Salem Township Hospital also provides a wide range of specialty physicians.
