During the program, the hospital’s diagnostic imaging suite will be named in honor or Dr. Jerry R. Luther and nursing supervisor Lois Rembert will be honored for 46 years of service.

Recognizing the need for advanced diagnostic imaging services in Demopolis, Luther used his knowledge and skill as a board certified radiologist to enhance and grow that department at BWWMH.

During his time on the hospital’s medical staff, Luther assisted the department and it grew to include x-rays, ultrasounds, nuclear medicine, CAT scans, mammograms and MRIs.

Rembert worked at the hospital from October 1966 until she retired this past fall.
