Renovation of the Diagnostic and Imaging Center at UM Shore Regional Health is progressing as scheduled. The 14 month project, which commenced on February 2, will be completed in three phases and will encompass most of the Center, including all laboratory and imaging spaces.
The project, which is anticipated to be completed by April 2016, will also incorporate the expansion of Shore Regional Health’s Comprehensive Breast Center. Once completed, the Comprehensive Breast Center will provide a variety of breast health services at the Diagnostic and Imaging Center, including consultation and diagnostic procedures.
As a reminder, during renovation, the Diagnostic and Imaging Center will continue its normal hours of operation Monday thru Friday, from 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. until noon for lab work, routine x-ray and digital screening mammography only. Services at the Center will continue to include digital mammography, bone density, ultrasound, CT scanning, MRI, X-ray, fluoroscopy, PET scanning, ECG and laboratory services.
Patient parking and the main entrance to the Diagnostic and Imaging Center will not be altered during the first two phases of the project. However, when the third phase commences in October 2015, the entrance to the building will be moved due to construction. Patients and visitors to the Center can expect to see signage directing them to any change and as always, volunteers from the Auxiliary of Memorial Hospital at Easton will be on hand to direct patients to their desired testing area.
A special thanks to the team members and volunteers at the Diagnostic and Imaging Center for their patience and cooperation during construction, especially in the face of the recent inclement weather. Your commitment to provide our patients with high quality care and customer service during this process is much appreciated.
