Employee Profiles: Staci
… perform a wide variety of x-ray procedures in different locations throughout UW Hospitals and Clinics. About half of my time is spent working in the Gastrointestinal (GI) Unit, which includes fluoroscopy and general x-rays using contrast to visualize the patient's gastrointestinal tract (GI) and genitourinary (GU) system. But the other half of my time at work is spent doing scans in variety of other areas in the hospital including: Emergency Room, Operating Room, American Family Children’s Hospital, bedside imaging, and at different outpatient clinics. The variety allows for me to really grow my skills as an Imaging Specialist!
Why UW Hospitals and Clinics?
After completing my training through the UW School of Radiologic Technology at the hospital, I felt comfortable with the complex procedures that we perform at UW Hospitals and Clinics on a daily basis. The technologists and radiologists that I work with are helpful, caring, knowledgeable, and very competent at what they do. I enjoy the fact that I still encounter challenging patients and exams on a regular basis, no one patient or exam is ever the same.
What I Like Best
I feel honored to work with wonderful groups of technologists, doctors, nurses and many other faculty that have contributed to the many awards and achievements UW Hospital and Clinics has received. Patients come to UW Hospitals and Clinics with some of the most complex and severe illnesses, and it gives me great satisfaction to contribute my skills to a patient's recovery after surgery, a life-changing accident, an unexpected health issue or other circumstances that bring them to the UW Hospitals and Clinics.
My Proudest Moment
Was when a patient that I had helped with a GI procedure wrote a letter and said how efficient and knowledgeable I was compared to an imaging specialist who performed the same procedure at another hospital.
