The Radiology Department is located on the ground floor adjacent to the Emergency Department. We are staffed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week.
We are a highly specialized, full-service department, which strives to meet all patient and clinician needs in diagnostic imaging and image-guided therapies.
Our services include:
Diagnostic Radiology (X-Ray)
Computerized Tomography (CT Scan)
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
We have a full-time Radiologist on-site Monday - Friday and available after hours for reading CT scans through our Teleradiography Service.
Our Technologists are fully licensed and Certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT). The Mammography department is fully accredited by the American College of Radiology and the Food and Drug Administration.

Role Played by Department in Overall Care of Patient:
Working closely with the Emergency department, we have an extremely fast response time to Emergency/critically injured patients with near immediate reports given in trauma situations to aid the attending Physician(s).
Patient Processing Procedures:
All patients are required to register in the "admissions" department prior to being sent back to the Radiology department.
Availability of Services/Physician Referral Requirements/Qualifications for Services:
All routine procedures are available on a scheduled basis Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:00am - 4:00pm. All procedures must be "called-in" and scheduled with the Radiology department between the hours of 8:00am - 4:00pm. Also, physician referral forms must be sent with the patient or faxed to admissions prior to the patient's arrival for their tests. This must include the procedure(s) ordered and the proper diagnosis to cover the exams ordered along with the ordering physician's signature.
Patient Educational Information:
Procedure preparation instructions should be given by the ordering physician's office at the time the procedure is scheduled. If questions arise after leaving the physician's office, you may call the Radiology department for further instructions.
