TPIU AWARDS

TPIU AWARDS

Guilford Radiology receives the first Halo Award in January 2017.
The Patient is U Foundation awarded Guilford Radiology the TPIU Halo Award for their commitment to great outcomes, easy and courteous access, and compassionate care.

Guilford Radiology has provided friendly evidence-based medical care to the Guilford community for over 35 years.  They are leaders in providing state-of-the-art exams, including 3D Tomosynthesis Mammography and high field strength MRI.  They accept all insurances, including Medicaid, and if a patient has no insurance, they offer a 50% prompt payer discount.

Guilford Radiology has evening and weekend hours as well.

Lung Cancer Screening is an example of their commitment to serving their community.  In 2011, when the United States Task Force proved that Lung Cancer Screening CT scans saved lives, insurance didn't cover this new exam.  In order to provide this life-saving exam to the community, Guilford Radiology offered this CT exam for only $100.

For Veterans, Lung Cancer Screening has been free on Veteran's Day.  Guilford Radiology was the first center along the Shoreline to get the prestigious ACR Lung Cancer Screening Center Certification.  Guilford Radiology recently acquired a new 80 slice CT scanner, allowing for the lowest radiation dose possible, in some cases, no higher than routine x-rays.

Guilford Radiology continues to demonstrate its dedication to promote the best health to
the community with their newest offering:  For all Guilford Police, Ambulance,
Firefighters, as well as all USA Active Service personnel and Veterans, if insurance does not pay for Lung Cancer Screening exam, these lifesaving exams are completely free every day of the year.

 

 

 

FUNDING

Bhutan Foundation receives TPIU funding

Bhutan is a small Buddhist kingdom in the Himalaya, between China & India. Its 735,000 inhabitants occupy roughly 15,000 square miles, with terrain that extends from subtropical flatlands in the south to steep snow-capped mountains in the north. This constitutional monarchy serves the people of Bhutan in living and sharing in the four pillars of Gross National Happiness (GNH):
Conservation of the Environment,
Equitable and Sustainable Development,
Good Governance, and
Preservation of Culture.
The Bhutan Foundation supports special projects and development of all areas of GNH. At TPIU, we want to promote this principle in HealthCare, in our country and around the world, and we are pleased to be able to help the Bhutan Foundation in support of its people and their goals.

Caroline's Room Foundation receives TPIU funding

It is where, in the midst of crisis and struggle, families can find comfort, peace, and a sense of home.
 

The mission of Caroline’s Room is to ease the trauma of families with children in neonatal intensive care. We do this through:

  • Providing a safe haven where families meet in privacy with caregivers to plot strategies and deal with outcomes;
  • Raising public awareness of the risks of babies born too soon and the needs of their families; and
  • Collaborating with a range of partners to achieve our vision.
Provider Wellness Fund receives TPIU Funding
This important Fund was created at MidState Medical Center to help ensure that HealthCare Providers are given the necessary support to practice medicine in a calm, compassionate manner.  When doctors are rushed & stressed, and there is little time to talk to patients about what is important to them. This Fund will help bring back the treasured patient-doctor relationship and let the providers practice their specialty, provide an environment where the provider feel under control and have the time to talk to and examine their patients, and in turn, a place where the patients feel that they are receiving kind compassionate care.
