Memorial Healthcare delivers a wide range of diagnostic services directly to our outpatient visitors and in support of the various hospital departments while caring for our inpatients.
Memorial Healthcare partners with Advanced Radiology Services, PC, headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to provide diagnostic services. With 157 radiologists and 27 advanced practice providers, Advanced Radiology Services, PC (ARS) is one of the largest private practice radiology groups in the country. With a deep bench of experts in IT infrastructure, radiology applications, data analytics/revenue cycle and health care law, housed in our STARS subsidiary, and the powerful connectivity generated by our Distributed Reading (DR) PACS platform, the corporation provides sub-specialized 24/7 radiology interpretation to all of our hospital customers, regardless of size, while maintaining the on-site presence that preserves the vital sense of collegiality and continuity of care lacking in teleradiology-only practices.
Our Radiology department is equipped with top-of-the-line digital radiographic and fluoroscopic equipment from GE Medical Systems, Konica Minolta, Fuji Medical Systems, and Phillips.
Our main hospital campus offers excellence in service, quality care, and advanced procedures such as MRI, CT and PET/CT Scans. All of our diagnostic services are available 24/7 to serve emergency and trauma patients and are open to outpatient visitors during scheduled hours.
Quality services are also conveniently located on a walk-in basis at any of our seven clinics throughout the greater Shiawassee County area. In addition, our Diagnostic Center in Owosso at 100 Health Park Drive was designed to combine both diagnostic imaging and lab services for ultimate convenience. At this site, patients will find Bone Density, Digital Mammography, Stereotactic Breast Biopsy, Ultrasound and general radiology, all with the patient focus you deserve.
Recently, Memorial Healthcare was proudly recognized by the Women’s Choice Awards for Best Hospitals for Mammogram Imaging.
Qualification for the 2023 Mammogram Award is dependent upon a hospital’s breast care center being designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) by the American College of Radiologists. Memorial Healthcare’s mammography services – which offer patients the revolutionary Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam – have earned this accreditation, placing them in the top 10% of eligible hospitals with another 71% patient recommendation rating in this category.
We are proudly recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This seal renews our accreditation for 3 years and affirms the quality work we deliver with mammography care. Being recognized by industry leaders for excellence in meeting or exceeding patient care standards is the highest designation available through the ACR.
We are pleased to offer patients the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam! Our Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam, available on a Selenia® Dimensions® system from Hologic, is revolutionizing how breast cancer is detected by providing a better option for women of all breast densities compared to 2D alone. Researchers have found that:
- The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam finds 20-65% more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D alone, an average increase of 41%.
- Only the Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam is FDA approved as superior for women with dense breasts compared to 2D alone.
- The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam reduces callbacks by up to 40% compared to 2D alone.
More than 8 million Genius™ exams have been performed in the U.S, and women have responded very positively to this procedure. According to a recent survey of women who received a Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam and had previously had a traditional 2D exam:
- 98% of patients feel more confident and secure in their results from a Genius™ exam
- 93% of patients reported feeling less anxious with Genius™ exams than with traditional 2D Mammography
- 91% of patients agree the quality of care provided by the facility was better with a Genius™ exam; and
- 94% of patients are likely to request a Genius™ exam for their next mammogram
Digital mammography services are provided at two convenient locations including the Memorial Diagnostic Center at 100 Health Park in Owosso and the main hospital at 826 W. King in Owosso.
When indicated, Memorial Healthcare offers procedures such as Breast MRI and stereotactic biopsy for further evaluation.
