Introducing the Imaging Center of Maine

09/04/2009

(Bangor, ME) – Today, everyone is on the go. Whether you are a mom who’s trying to squeeze in a doctor’s appointment between school functions or a business person who’s trying to fit in an appointment between meetings, EMMC understands time is valuable.

As part of our commitment to provide patients with exceptional care close to home, we are pleased to open The Imaging Center of Maine on Monday, September 14, 2009. Located at the EMMC Healthcare Mall on Union Street in Bangor, the Imaging Center of Maine will be home to the region’s only Open High Field MRI. The Open High Field MRI is designed with the patient in mind. It can easily accommodate any patient including large size individuals, children, and those who suffer from claustrophobia. In addition, the new center will house many of EMMC’s other outpatient imaging services, like echocardiograms, EKG, diagnostic X-Rays, screening mammograms, CT scans, and ultrasounds.

“We’ve made it easier for our patients who need to utilize our outpatient imaging services,” explains Susan Dow, RT ( R ) (ARRT), BS, director of medical imaging. “There is plenty of convenient parking, a comfortable, spa-like waiting area, and extended hours to fit our patient’s busy lives.”

The Imaging Center of Maine will be open Monday – Friday from 7 am - 8:30 pm, and on weekends and holidays from 7 am – 7:30 pm. Patients who require the outpatient imaging services after hours will be asked to come to the main campus.

Please join us for a tour of the Imaging Center of Maine at the EMMC Healthcare Mall on Union Street before it opens to patients on Friday, September 11 at 2 pm. Media interested in touring the facility is asked to call EMMC’s media hotline at 973-9530.
