Born from continued growth in and increasing demand for imaging services, CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System’s new Imaging Center began to come to life in March 2005 when ground was broken.
Located between the CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System and the CHRISTUS St. Michael Rehabilitation Hospital on the 128-acre tree-filled St. Michael campus, the Imaging Center opened in June 2006.
The center enhances CHRISTUS St. Michael’s ability to serve physicians and their patients with leading-edge technology accompanied by increased access and convenience.
“We are very excited to provide this center to our outpatients,” says Lisa Patterson, Imaging Center Manager. “We have carefully planned both the design and location of this facility with each person’s needs and comforts in mind. Patients can drive directly to the imaging center and park within steps of the front door. Easy access to services was foremost in the minds of everyone as the design of the imaging center was considered.”
CHRISTUS St. Michael’s Imaging Center delivers advanced technology and comprehensive diagnostic radiology services including mammography, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), bone densitometry, and diagnostic radiology (x-ray). The center houses, off the main lobby, private lounges for the various diagnostic areas. The mammography lounge also contains an educational room.
Staffed by experienced health professionals, CHRISTUS St. Michael’s Imaging Center includes a radiologist, registered nurse, and radiology technologists on-site. Additionally, CHRISTUS St. Michael’s radiology nurses are ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) certified. “We believe our staff is the finest not only because of their education and training but, because they all love what they do. They go the extra step to make sure our patients receive the quality care they deserve,” says Patterson. “We believe that patients will not only see the difference in care this facility brings to CHRISTUS St. Michael but they will feel the difference too.”
