Business in brief


HCA Virginia’s Henrico Doctors’ and Johnston-Willis Hospitals are now offering a new FDA-approved automated breast ultrasound system for imaging women with dense breast tissue, making them the only hospitals in Central Virginia who are offering this new screening option. The Invenia ABUS, or Automated Breast Ultrasound System, is an adjunct to mammography for asymptomatic women with dense breast tissue and no prior interventions. The system is designed to enhance the consistency, reproducibility and sensitivity of whole breast ultrasound, demonstrating a 35.7 percent improvement in cancer detection. Virginia is one of 13 states that has passed legislation mandating that screening mammography patients demonstrating greater than 50 percent breast density should be informed of their density as well as the limitation of screening with mammography alone. > Read more.

HCPS’ “Un-initiative” asks ‘less’ of employees

Henrico County Public Schools is asking its employees for less. . . in a manner of speaking.

The school system has launched what it calls the "Un-initiative" as a way to solicit input from employees about programs or actions that they believe the school system can do without.

“We’re asking all employees – teachers, cafeteria workers, bus drivers – to send us their ideas on things that we’re doing that they think we can stop doing and still be an efficient and effective organization,” Superintendent Pat Kinlaw said. > Read more.

Henrico HS student organizes camp for special needs students
Rising Henrico High School senior Olivia Faraone knew she wanted to build partnerships and friendships between students across a spectrum of talents, abilities and backgrounds at her school.

So this summer, she launched Camp Connected, a week-long summer camp that paired special needs participants with camp volunteers as part of the Students for Students club that works towards inclusion.

When Faraone began at Henrico High School, she noticed that students weren’t interacting with the special needs students. During her lunch break, she began visiting them in exceptional education teacher Anita Smith’s classroom. > Read more.

Campaign provides diapers to low-income families

Capital Diaper Bank and Anthem HealthKeepers are holding a diaper drive through June 2. The “Diaper Change” campaign focuses on providing diapers to low-income families in central Virginia.

Diapers are a necessary part of day-to-day life for young children and their families but providing them is not always easy. A healthy change of diapers costs nearly $100 each month and one in three American mothers struggle to provide diapers for their babies. Diapers are not typically covered by social service programs.

Babies in low-income households often spend an entire day in a single diaper creating many health problems, including skin disease and staph infections. A baby crying from being in a soiled diaper for prolonged periods of time may also be at a greater risk for child abuse. > Read more.

Keagan’s earns its good ‘pub’

When you enter Keagan’s Richmond, with its long bar and corner stage, it feels immediately like a typical Irish pub or tavern with its noise from merry patrons sitting along the well-equipped long bar eating a boxty or Shepherd’s pie and sipping their Guinness on tap or Irish Whiskey.

But that is about as far the Irish character goes. The music, whether from the “can,” a Virginia rock band, or the DJ in the evening, is not necessarily Irish. The same is true of the food menu, which offers (in addition to typically Irish specialties) typical American favorites, such as burgers, sandwiches, and chicken drums (the boneless variety) with spicy and not so spicy sauces and sides. > Read more.
