Kathleen T. Garrett, R.T, (R)(CT) Chief Technician

As Chief Technologist, and an expert in Virtual Colonoscopy, Kathy is the heart and soul of Colon Health Center of Delaware.   Her extensive clinical experience working with patients in medical imaging (more 30 years as a Radiology Technologist), and her undeniable talent for making patients feel relaxed and comfortable with procedures, make her an important reason why CHC Delaware maintains a greater than 95% patient satisfaction level.  Click here to see what patients are saying about Kathy and her clinical and personal skills.

As an expert in her field, Kathy has served as a Clinical Instructor in several area Radiology Programs, including St. Francis Hospital, Christiana Care, Crozer Keystone Health System, and the Delaware Technical Community College Radiologic Technology Program.  Kathy came to CHC Delaware in 2008 from the NeuroScience Center of Delaware.

Kathy grew up a southern girl, having been born and raised in Tennessee.  But she is now a "card-carrying" Delawarean, having spent most of her life here in the First State.  Proof of this—as well as her eternal optimism—is her avid following of Philadelphia sports teams.

Says Kathy:  "The favorite part of my job at Colon Health Center of Delaware is the interaction with patients and the time I get to spend with them during and after the procedure, ensuring their comfort and understanding of the study. I think a smile from a patient at the end of the day is the ultimate reward for a job well-done!"

Come visit Kathy to see clinical excellence in action, and receive life-saving colon cancer screening while you're at it!




Helen Thomas, Receptionist/Patient Advocate

Helen wears many different hats at CHC Delaware, but the one thing that is a constant is her warm, sincere smile.  Helen will likely be the one to take your call, fax, or email, and will help you navigate your way through the scheduling and registration process.  And she's an expert at making this experience a smooth and painless one.

A native of Western Pennsylvania, Helen has lived in Delaware for over 30 years, so she's practically a native of the First State.  For many of these years, she has worked in the medical field as a receptionist and in medical billing, and has spent the last five years in the medical imaging field.

Helen came to CHC Delaware in 2008 with a keen, personal understanding of the importance of colon cancer screening.  Several years ago, her own colon screening led to the discovery and removal of precancerous polyps.  Because of her experience, she has a strong desire to promote higher screening rates in the community and has the opportunity to do that at CHC Delaware.

Helen enjoys the simple things in life, like doing arts and crafts, gardening, participating in her church community, and spending time with friends and family.  She especially enjoys seeing her two beautiful grandchildren. 

Helen's warm smile and friendly attitude are some of the main reasons why CHC Delaware's patient satisfaction rates are over 95%.  Come see for yourself, and get life-saving colon screening while you're at it!
