Bothwell Regional Health Center (BRHC) announced today it purchased the assets affiliated with the Sedalia Imaging Center located at 1430 Thompson Boulevard in Sedalia, Missouri. The independent imaging center, which opened in 2010, closed its doors on February 13, 2017. All of the former Sedalia Imaging Center employees who indicated a desire to continue working in imaging services have been hired by BRHC.
“We were approached by the owners of the Sedalia Imaging Center about whether we would have an interest in purchasing the center’s assets,” said Jimmy Robertson, chief executive officer of BRHC. “After careful consideration, we decided it would benefit patients, the community and BRHC to do so because it would allow us to right-size imaging services in Sedalia.”
Starting March 6, BRHC will be offering extended hours for an MRI, CT scan or X-ray at the hospital. The new hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday. BRHC will also begin offering pregnant women the option to have elective gender-reveal and 3D/4D ultrasounds at Bothwell OB/GYN Associates located at 3700 W. 10th Street in Sedalia.
“In addition to the extended imaging hours at the hospital, and the gender-reveal and 3D/4D ultrasounds at Bothwell OB/GYN Associates, there are other benefits to patients from this consolidation,” said Robertson. “Self-pay patients who need imaging services at BRHC do not have to pay upfront for imaging services. They can finance their payments interest-free through an arrangement between BRHC and Central Bank of Sedalia.”
BRHC also offers imaging services at Bothwell Health Center—Truman Lake in Warsaw, Missouri, which includes digital mammography, ultrasound, digital X-ray and DEXA. All imaging exams at BRHC are performed by registered technologists and read by board-certified radiologists.
