Dosher imaging unit named for retired physician

The Dr. Richard Corbett Diagnostic Imaging Suite is now the name of this unit at Dosher Memorial Hospital after a Dosher Foundation ceremony in 2016.

The retired radiologist who worked at Dosher from 1962 to 1988 has supported the hospital in general and the imaging department in particular with numerous monetary and other gifts over the years.

More than 70 guests attended the event, including residents of Brunswick, New Hanover and Bladen counties. Tom Ryan, former hospital administrator from the 1970s, was one of several speakers who called Dr. Corbett a mentor.

Guests that evening also toured Dosher's newest imaging technology, a 3D mammography suite.

Dr. Corbett reminisces about his 26 years as the radiologist at Dosher, 1962-88. He was the first radiologist in Brunswick County.
