Get to Know our SRH Staff: Stuart Boren, Radiology

What is your role at the hospital? What do you do on a daily basis?
I am the Lead MRI Technologist on the Frisco campus. Being at the hospital can be a stressful time for children and adults, so I strive to give patients and families an enjoyable experience while they are in the MRI suite. Also, I get to collaborate with our radiology team and physicians to ensure we are meeting the unique needs of each patient we see.
 
What led you to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children? How long have you worked here?
I wanted to be here for the challenge of working with pediatric patients. I feel like I have always been able to relate with my patient population and I knew this could help with the potential difficulties of conducting  pediatric scans. I have been with Scottish Rite for Children for a little over one year. 
 
What do you enjoy most about Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children?
I enjoy seeing the satisfied looks on patients and family members after completing a difficult procedure, such as a MRI. The appreciation you receive makes it all worth it.
 
What was your first job?
I worked at Center Office Products doing mostly warehouse work.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time I enjoy sporting events, attending concerts, dancing with my wife, coaching my son’s baseball team, playing soccer/tennis with my little girl, golf, video gaming and being with friends.
 
The next day is never promised, so I try to enjoy every minute and never sweat the small stuff.
 
Three words to best describe you:
Outgoing, energetic, dependable
 
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
A vet, professional gamer, DJ or working at Chick-fil-A (I love their chicken!)
 
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?
A group of friends and I decided to go white water rafting down the Chattooga River. The water was cold, the rapids were intense and the adrenaline rush was amazing. It happens to be the same river where the movie Deliverance was filmed on and I love Burt Reynolds.
