Memorial Minute - April 16, 2019
April 16, 2019
South Telshor was reduced to one lane last Friday as the delivery truck and crane moved into place to offload our new MRI machine. The MRI project includes a complete remodel of the area in Memorial’s Imaging Department that will house this new technology, along with a state of the art GE® Telsa MRI machine and software upgrade.
Memorial has invested nearly $3 million to be the first in the region to offer patients this high quality imaging and diagnostic system. The MRI weighed more than 6,600 lbs. and was moved from a flatbed truck by crane into our building through a large hole in the side wall of the room where the machine is being installed and calibrated.
