October 1, 2014, Advanced Imaging located at 5508 Summerhill Road was integrated into Wadley Regional Medical Center as a department of the hospital. “Advanced Imaging’s vision of providing uncompromising service and superior technology to patients and referring physicians in a cost effective manner is one that Wadley embraces and intends on continuing,” says Thomas Gilbert, President of Wadley Regional Medical Center.
The uniting of Advanced Imaging and Wadley Regional Medical Center provides a wonderful opportunity to expand Wadley’s Imaging Services to Northern Texarkana to better serve the community. It allows for consistent service and coverage across Wadley’s inpatient and outpatient imaging services. “We hope the change in ownership is simply a behind the scenes event and to our customers it is totally transparent,” states Gilbert. “The physicians and employees of the center that you have relied upon and trusted will remain, as well as hours of operation, phone number and the process of scheduling.” Diagnostic imaging currently available is the area’s only 3T MRI and Upright Open MRI, as well as an open bore MRI, a CT scanner, a full range of ultrasound and general x-ray capabilities.
“Sharing the same goals and commitment to continuing the excellent service for which Advanced Imaging is known made this an easy decision,” says Dr. Michael Hill, Medical Director of Advanced Imaging. “We have prided ourselves in being responsive both to our patients and to the referring physicians by giving timely appointments, many times the same day, as well as providing personalized feedback to the referring physician, and this will continue as it has in the past.”
With a focus on treating outpatients quickly, cost effectively, and with the greatest care and expertise since 2004, Advanced Imaging has built a strong brand in the Texarkana region. “Wadley Advanced Imaging will continue to offer the same services and is committed to build upon the solid brand the community has come to expect,” concludes Gilbert.
