The Radiological Society of Connecticut (RSC) has honored Senate President Pro Tempore Martin Looney (D-New Haven) for his leadership and accomplishments on healthcare issues.

“Senator Looney has always been accessible to discuss healthcare issues with our members and patients. He is knowledgeable, effective and transparent, and we appreciate that very much. Patients are benefitting from his important work in the Connecticut General Assembly,” said Thomas Farquhar, MD, legislative chair of the RSC.

Senator Looney is known for serving as a co-chair of a bipartisan roundtable on hospitals and healthcare that has developed several important pieces of legislation, such as protecting consumers from “surprise billings” in hospitals and other settings.

He has played a leading role in passing legislation that expands the range of breast cancer screenings that are available to patients as well as ensuring that patient safety comes first in limiting radiation for imaging tests such as CT Scan or MRI.

Senator Looney is the leader of the Democrats caucus in the 36-member state Senate and is now serving his fourteenth term as a member of that body.

The award presentation was announced at the RSC semi-annual membership meeting in New Haven on September 24.
