Paris, TN — Henry County Medical Center’s Robbie Williams, RDMS, RVT, a sonographer in Imaging Services, recently became certified as a Registered Vascular Technologist (RVT).
Williams came to HCMC in February after graduating from West Kentucky Community & Technical College in 2021.
“Everyone has been so welcoming and they all go the extra mile to help me adjust to my new work environment,” Williams said of working at HCMC. “My coworkers are the absolute best and I could not be more thankful for them and blessed to start my career in such a wonderful work environment.”
“Robbie is a wonderful addition to our ultrasound team. She is a positive, hard-working technologist and has jumped right in and become a part of our imaging family. Robbie puts patients’ needs first and that shows! Thank you, Robbie, for all your hard work and dedication to HCMC.” Courtney Flowers
Prior to coming to HCMC, she worked for her father at Williams Landscaping, which she has done since the age of 13. Originally from Benton, KY, Williams is a 2016 graduate of Murray High School in Murray, KY. She has one son, Knox, and is engaged to be married this fall.
Registered vascular technologists, also known as vascular technicians or vascular sonographers, specialize in using ultrasound technology and other similar types of equipment to analyze how blood and oxygen flow through the extremities of their patients’ bodies. They train to be able to identify and record any abnormalities discovered during the procedure, using this information to help doctors locate potential blockages in arteries and determine if a patient is suffering from any vascular disease or disorder.
To become a registered vascular technologist, you must complete a two-year training program and one year of full-time vascular technician experience as well as pass a two-part exam.
