Jameson Hospital Announces Same-Day, Next-Day Medical Imaging with Extended Evening, Weekday & Saturday Appointments

Date: 03/19/2012

Jameson Hospital is making it easy for patients and physician offices to schedule and secure same-day and next-day medical imaging appointments offered at new, flexible hours. By dialing the health system’s Centralized Scheduling line at (724) 656-4220, an appointment can be pre-registered and scheduled at any Jameson Health System facility, many of which are now offering extended evening, weekday and Saturday appointments.

“It can be difficult to take time away from work for medical visits, and that’s why we’re focused to dedicate extended openings and hours that will fit into our patients’ busy schedules. Most exams can be scheduled within 24 hours and in some cases the test can be completed the very same day that you call,” comments Jane Beight, Director of Diagnostic Services for Jameson Health System. “Appointments for most studies can be made the same day and if preparation is required we’ll get you in the next day.”

When imaging studies are completed at a Jameson Health System facility, patients experience efficient service with fast results back to their physician. Physicians ordering the tests have the additional benefit of continual access to their patients’ digital images remotely through the health system’s picture-archiving and communication system (PACS). The health system provides the latest, leading edge technology for the full spectrum of imaging modalities including ultrasound, x-ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), digital mammography, computerized tomography (CT), bone density scanning and nuclear medicine.

JHS diagnostic center locations include: Jameson Hospital North Campus, Jameson Hospital South Campus, Lawrence County MRI & Diagnostic Imaging Center, Jameson Diagnostic Center at Mayzon, Jameson Lab Services, Jameson Mohawk Community Health Center, Jameson New Wilmington Community Health Center and Jameson Shenango Community Health Center.
