Welcome to Radiology! Diagnostic Radiology is one of the most commonly used medical imaging procedures.

X-Rays are used to:

  • Diagnose injury to bones, joints, and internal organs.
  • Identify infections, diseases, or other abnormalities within the body.

Our Mission

The Department of Radiology is here to deliver the highest quality medical imaging services to you and your family through teamwork, empathy, and innovation. Trust our family to care for yours.

Our Goals

  • To provide cost effective, convenient, efficient, and appropriate care for patients in need of radiologic diagnosis

Scope of Services

Exams are performed on emergency room patients, inpatients, outpatients, and our nursing home residents. We provide care to patients of any age group: pediatrics, adolescents, adults, and geriatric patients. Patients may be ambulatory or non-ambulatory.

The Department of Radiology provides support to all departments located within the medical facility. Imaging studies are performed upon receipt of a written or electronic exam order from a physician or other authorized licensed practitioner.

Exams will be reviewed and dictated by a licensed Radiologist. The report will be made available to the ordering physician or authorized licensed practitioner for review.

Outpatients/Community Walk-Ins are also welcomed at any time for your convenience.
