Facility Recognition

Louisiana Imaging Professionals Making A Difference

The LSRT Recognizes

Our Lady of the Lake Livingston

  Walker, Louisiana

  Todd Peters – Departmental Manager   Our Lady of the Lake Livingston surpasses in excellence for Medical Imaging by best practices in protocols, policies, teamwork, and leadership for an excellent patient care experience. Specialty Imaging has obtained ACR recognition in many modalities with passionate, quality Imaging Technologists that excel in their areas of practice. Diagnostic and Specialty Imaging is managed by Todd Peters, and is run efficiently with excellent patient satisfaction scores since opening just over 7 years ago. This facility is made up of 5 different specialty areas as well as Diagnostic and Fluoroscopic Imaging.  Experience of the Technologist employed at the facility ranges from 20 years to less than a year. Many employees within the department are cross trained in one additional modality. The facility is staffed 24 hrs/7 days a week for CT and Diagnostic Imaging needs serving the only ER in the parish. For all modalities, the department operates to serve additionally the physicians’ offices located within the building and surrounding area. As a stand-alone facility managed by a top quality leader in Sybil Cotton, they work within the larger OLOL system. 

  OLOL Livingston’s MRI unit is particularly unique as a state of the art piece of technology called CinemaVision. As one of the only in the area, the unit is designed so that patients can watch shows or movies through the goggle technology or listen to preferred music through the ear pieces while in the MRI scanner. The room color and intensity of lighting is controlled and adjusted by the technologist for each patient’s wishes or comfort. This equipment assists in lowering or eliminating the need for  sedation in pediatric fast scans, works for the benefit of special needs patients, and aids in the reduction of patient’s anxiety. Mandi Monistere – Lead MRI Technologist

     Shannon Cannon Cross training is not only encouraged by management, but it is key to keeping the facility viable to the community that they serve. The management teams further benefit patients by working closely with the ER and radiologists to provide high quality interdepartmental communication. Consistently meeting top personal and departmental goals, this department advocates for all patients. The team continues to grow to better serve Livingston Parish, the facility, and the profession through being encouraged by management to actively participate with the LSRT or by seeking post primary ARRT Certifications. Shannon Cannon – Lead Technologist

     Following the devastation to the area in the Fall of 2016, under Peters’ direction, this 20190925_131448facility’s technologists have continually found ways to support each other and their community through various events that develop leadership, teamwork, and care for their patient population. Todd Peters consistently applies leadership skills obtained through achieving CRA Certification and various FMOL process improvement projects that benefit his and other departments. Recently, he was selected to receive an award for his dedication and impact made on his community in completing a parish wide leadership program. 

     Quality, hardworking technologists at this department continue to put patients first in all interactions and they should all be recognized for a job well done within our state and profession.   Cody Hooper – CT Technologists
