We are so grateful to work with such fantastic teams like Ft. Jesse’s. Below, learn more about why Ft. Jesse chose the Caring MR Suite, and about their experience so far in this Q&A with the Ft. Jesse Imaging and Gale Keeran Center Team.

1. What happened the day you realized you needed a solution like the Caring MR Suite®?

“Increased claustrophobia and anxiety with patients was leading to an increase in patient cancellations.”

2. What problem were you hoping to solve?

“We wanted to help our patients feel more relaxed, and create a welcoming environment, which we believed would help our cancellations due to claustrophobia.”

3. What were your concerns before purchasing the Caring MR Suite?

“The expense of the room and wondering if it would truly help our patients.”

4. What would you have done had you not bought a solution from PDC?  What else were you researching?

“We were looking at just doing new flooring and paint and not spending the extra money for the lighting and ceiling panels.”

5. What’s your favorite part of the Caring MR Suite®?

“The lighting that changes colors on the [Illuminated Wall Fixtures] and the two [curved coves.]”

6. What’s changed the most since you’ve gotten the Caring MR Suite®?

“The patient comments that we receive, [such as] warm feeling, spa feeling, clean and crisp look, inviting….”

7. How would you describe the Caring MR Suite® to someone else in your position?

“The PDC Caring Suite™ allows for you to take a room that looks like there is no organization, with coils and items laying around, and create a very clean environment.  When I walk into the suite, all of the coils are hidden in a cabinet, the linen is hidden in a cabinet, and I only see the warm [Illuminated Wall Fixtures] with the wheat grass on them glowing from behind.  It truly relaxes me.”

8. How did you hear/learn about PDC’s Caring MR Suite?

“Online and research, and we also used PDC for our shielding – they are a great company!”
