Memorial Receives New MRI Equipment

April 5, 2019

This morning for two hours, southbound Telshor traffic was down to one lane as a crew hoisted more than 6,600 lbs of brand new MRI equipment into Memorial Medical Center’s Imaging Department.  The new $1.6 million GE Telsa MRI is the first of its kind in the region and, along with construction of the new MRI suite, represents a $3 million investment in advanced technology at Memorial.

The installation will be completed this month, the staff trained in May and the new MRI will be in full use beginning in June.  We are very proud of our investment in state-of-the-art technology to provide quality healthcare to southern New Mexico.
