MRI services are now available at Beacon Granger Hospital after the completion of a $4.8 million addition to the facility.
The 3,600-square foot addition on the west side of the hospital at 3220 Beacon Parkway houses an outpatient MRI Center.
The new MRI services at Beacon Granger provides advanced MRI scanning capabilities that benefit both patients and physicians, which is designed to provide greater patient comfort by reducing claustrophobia and making procedure times shorter because of the equipment’s high magnet strength, officials said. Radiology Inc. reads scans performed at Beacon MRI centers.
“We decided to locate the MRI Center at Beacon Granger to offer our patients a convenient location in an outpatient setting,” said Derek Taylor, Beacon’s director of imaging services.
Beacon also offers MRI services at Memorial Hospital, South Bend; Elkhart General Hospital; and at Memorial Lighthouse Imaging Center, 6901 N. Main St., Granger. MRI services will also be available at the new Beacon Goshen Outpatient Center scheduled to open in August.
