Ben Smith, R.T. (R)(N), MBA, CEO
I have over 23 years of experience in the diagnostic imaging field that started when I was in the United States Air Force, where I served for almost seven years. Living in various locations all over the United States gave me a unique perspective of the health care needs of communities like Grants Pass. As an individual and father, I struggled with the ever-increasing cost of health care and in particular diagnostic imaging and made a promise to myself that when the opportunity came to serve the community directly by helping to reduce the cost of health care I would make the leap. Becoming the CEO of Mid Rogue Imaging fulfilled my lifelong dream to serve my community in a way that makes a positive difference in people’s lives.
I am a second generation Oregonian and moved to Grants Pass in the late eighties when my brother and his new bride became pastors at a local church here. The rest of the family has lived in the area since 1991. I enjoy riding my motorcycle and working on old cars and hiking when I have free time.
Caryl Story, R.T. Ultrasound, X-ray, CT, BD
Because of my love of the outdoors, I was encouraged to attend Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls, where I received my Radiologic Degree. I have enjoyed enhancing my diagnostic medical ultrasound skills in the beautiful and scenic Rogue valley for over 20 years. Along with my immediate family members, I have been able to participate in various equine activities in Southern Oregon, which has allowed me to work as a past member of the Josephine County Sheriffs Mounted Posse and a current member of the Jackson County Sheriffs Mounted Posse.
Tom Jones, R.T. X-Ray, MRI, CT
After serving as a Gunners Mate in the U.S. Navy, I attended an X-ray technologist externship program in Seattle, Washington, graduating in 1993. Since then, I have amassed advanced level certifications in Computed Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, and is board eligible in Positron Emission Tomography. When not at work, I like to hike and hang out with my dogs, Clay and Jax.
Stephanie Aubrey, OBRT X-ray Tech, DXA, Sleep
Imaging chose me when I was in the United States Army National Guard. I fell in love with the position and was committed to being an X-ray technologist because I found great satisfaction helping patients. I enjoy all sports, cooking and playing guitar.
Jake Peircey, R.T. X-ray, CT
I began my journey in the medical field in the rehabilitation department at St. Charles Health System where I assisted with patients that had mobility issues. The experience taught me the importance of patience and empathy for my patients and the value of strong teamwork. I was accepted into the diagnostic imaging program and moved into radiology, which shaped my desire not only to be proficient at my craft but also to strive to be an asset to my team. I built my skills in CT over the next few years, with a full-time position and advanced CT training at the Siemens facility. I then entered a position as an Imaging Supervisor and CT Coordinator and helped transition my team into a new Imaging Department and updated our CT protocols and processes so we could deliver the highest level of efficient patient care. My goal is to continue to grow in my skills technically and to bring my passion to serve to Mid Rogue Imaging.

I have lived in Grants Pass for five years and have brought my background in Financial Services and Executive Support to my position at Mid Rogue Imaging Center. I got into the medical field a few years back and I enjoy working with patients. I have chosen to stay in the medical field because I enjoy the sense of wellbeing and accomplishment I get from being able to help patients in any way that I can. When I’m not doing that, I love spending time with my family.
