CEO's Message


Welcome to Bradley County Medical Center. As I start my 32nd year in healthcare in Arkansas, I am proud to be a part of this hospital. We have a lot of history with our community and if you take the time to read the BCMC History on our website you will see that we have grown and adapted to the changing times over the last six decades.

And while there has been much change during those decades, the pace of change in the healthcare world has never been greater or faster than it is today. From giant leaps in technology to a constantly changing regulatory environment that governs what healthcare is and can be.

Because of this dynamic pace of change, what healthcare will look like in the next decade is anyone's guess at this point. But what I can tell you about the next decade is our continuing commitment to you and the communities we serve.

We shall continue to strive to meet your healthcare needs. To bring new and improved diagnostic tests and tools to the community to promote your well-being. To find new ways to make your healthcare more affordable and more accessible. To ensure that there is adequate primary care physician coverage and specialists to support them. To be here when you need us - this is our commitment to you.

And to be at our best when you need us the most - this is my commitment to you.

Steve Henson
CEO

BCMC Radiology to Offer State-of-the-Art Genius™ 3D Mammography™ Exams Starting Feb. 23


The Bradley County Medical Center Radiology Department is excited to offer Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exams, developed by Hologic, Inc., a worldwide leader in Women's Health beginning on Tuesday, Feb. 23. Utilizing advanced breast tomosynthesis technology, Genius exams are clinically proven to significantly increase the detection of breast cancers, and also decreasing the number of women asked to return for additional testing.

In conventional 2D Mammography, overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary callbacks. A Genius exam includes a three-dimensional method of imaging that can greatly reduce the tissue overlap effect.
