The latest facility delivers to residents convenience with specialized imaging care and board-certified radiologists
A modern 7,520-square-foot specialized diagnostic imaging center will soon be accessible to residents of downtown Orlando and the surrounding areas when the Orlando Health Imaging Centers – South Orange opens its doors this Wednesday, August 5.
To celebrate the opening of the new facility, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held with Greg Ohe, senior vice president, Ambulatory Services, Orlando Health, Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, president, Medical Center Radiology Group (MCRG), and Mayor Buddy Dyer, City of Orlando. The ceremony unveiled the facility located at 1800 S. Orange Avenue.
“Orlando Health is committed to providing superior care to our patients across Central Florida,” said Mr. Ohe. “The addition of this technologically-advanced and well-designed imaging center in busy downtown Orlando assures community members easy access to affordable imaging services.”
The new center provides high-quality services such as 3D mammography/tomosynthesis, bone densitometry, digital x-ray, wide-bore 3T MRI, high-field 1.2T Open MRI, 128-slice CT and ultrasound. Unlike most stand-alone imaging centers, Orlando Health Imaging Centers are fully integrated with all Orlando Health hospitals, departments and physicians. This assures complete visibility of current and relevant patient information to support clinical decision-making.
Additionally, all images are interpreted by MCRG’s board-certified radiologists experienced in numerous specialties and sub-specialties. Results are sent directly to referring physicians ‘same day’ to support clinical decision-making in a timely manner. Orlando Health’s 70-year relationship with MCRG is key to providing exceptional care to the community.
Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, president of MCRG, stated this strategic relationship supports the goal for expanding quality outpatient services and developing an unparalleled level of care.
“We’re very excited for the opening of the latest imaging center as access to medical imaging services is directly related to improved outcomes,” Dr. Chin said. “The advanced imaging technology available here will impact the lives of patients in this area through efficient and effective diagnostics for years to come.”
“This is great news for residents of the City of Orlando and those in the surrounding areas. Orlando Health is a recognized leader in the delivery of exceptional health care. The opening of this new 7,520-square-foot imaging center represents more than economic development, it represents an enhanced quality of life and health care for so many,” added Mayor Dyer.
The Orlando Health Imaging Centers – South Orange is the newest imaging facility to open in the Orlando Health network. The organization already provides imaging and diagnostic services at centers located in Altamonte Springs, Lake Mary, Spring Lake, Summerport and Winter Park, with a new consolidated and expanded location to open in Ocoee this Fall 2020.
