We are Alice.

Optimal images

with Optima tech

In December, Alice Hyde Medical Center invested in a new,

state-of-the-art GE 128-slice CT scanner. The Optima CT 660 is

GE’s latest generation intelligent CT system.

The scanner provides a higher-resolution 3-D image, allowing

for clearer images of patient anatomy in the same amount of

time. The new CT scanner also uses ASiR technology, which

helps reduce the patient’s dose of radiation significantly, while

not compromising the clarity of the images. We also invested

in GE’s DoseWatch technology, which helps monitor

a patient’s lifetime dose of radiation. DoseWatch

will allow us to access a patient’s dose history

and then determine the appropriate dose levels

for each procedure. Patients benefit by receiving

their high-quality diagnostic procedure at the

lowest reasonably achievable dose.

Alice Hyde is the first hospital north of Glens

Falls to have this technology. We are proud to

continue fulfilling our mission of providing

the North Country with Advanced

Medicine and Compassionate Care. This

new technology provides patients with

the very best in imaging capability,

close to home.

Alice Hyde,

Most Wired

Alice Hyde Medical Center was

named among the nation’s Most

Wired hospitals by

Hospitals &

Health Networks

magazine for

the second consecutive year.

The survey is an industry-

standard benchmark study

that measures the level of

information technology used

in U.S. hospitals and health

systems. A total of 20 New York

hospitals were among the more

than 420 Most Wired hospitals

nationwide. Alice Hyde was one

of only two hospitals north of

Albany to receive this award.

We also launched the Alice

Hyde Medical Center Patient

Portal. The Patient Portal is an

online tool that gives patients

access to their important health

information and helps them

manage their health care easily

and securely. Patients can view

lab results, radiology reports

and a summary of their health

information, among many other

things. They can also

view upcoming


and request


through the system.
