Keiser University Daytona Beach campus leaders were recently pleased to accept the donation of a Portable Imaging Machine from AdventHealth Daytona.
With delivery organized by Radiologic Technology Program Director Gloria Wyatt and Clinical Coordinator Christina Stephenson, the technology is designed to improve treatment and speed up diagnosis while cutting costs and will provide students additional learning opportunities for patient care. “AdventHealth Daytona was the first organization to accept our students in 2002. We value their commitment to the clinical education of our students as we work together to forge the next generation of Radiologic Technologists,” said Wyatt.
AdventHealth was formally founded in 1973 but traces its roots back to 1866 with a team of Seventh-day Adventist medical pioneers in Battle Creek, Michigan. During a time when many treatments were as harmful as the conditions they attempted to cure, its founders were considered revolutionaries for their belief that preventing disease was as important as treating it. They believed the best care didn’t treat only the body, it also helped heal the mind and lift the spirit. Since its founding, AdventHealth has treated every patient as a creation of God, deserving of extraordinary whole-person care. By focusing on the whole person and strengthening its mission, AdventHealth today is a national leader in quality, safety, and patient satisfaction.
