The latest facility delivers convenience to residents with specialized imaging care and board-certified radiologists
Windermere, FL (February 20, 2020) – Access to specialized diagnostic imaging services will soon be easier for West Orange County residents thanks to Orlando Health’s newest Orlando Health Imaging Centers – Summerport, which is scheduled to open on February 27.
To celebrate the opening of the new facility, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held on Thursday, February 20 with Orlando Health team members, community members and elected officials. The event unveiled a state-of-the-art diagnostic center inside an existing 60,000-square-foot medical pavilion located at the intersection of County Road 535 and West Lake Butler Road, directly across from the Summerport community.
“Orlando Health is committed to serving our patients well. The medical pavilion and now this imaging center are examples of the strides in making health care more accessible to West Orange County residents,” said Mark Marsh, president of Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital. “This location will provide superior access and be very convenient for patients in Summerport and the neighboring communities who may need multiple services.”
Created in 2014 to address Central Florida’s increasing imaging needs, the Orlando Health Imaging Centers is a for-profit joint venture between Orlando Health and the Medical Center Radiology Group (MCRG). The newest Orlando Health Imaging Centers – Summerport offers high-quality services such as 3D mammography/tomosynthesis, bone densitometry, digital x-ray, wide-bore 3T MRI and 128-slice CT. All images are read by board-certified radiologists experienced in numerous sub-specialties. Results are then sent directly to physicians to provide patients with same-day results.
“We’re excited for the opening of this new imaging center in Summerport,” said Dan Honerbrink, corporate director, Orlando Health Imaging Centers. “I am confident that this facility will deliver much-needed services to the community now and for years to come.”
Dr. Wei-Shen Chin, president of MCRG, stated that the strategic relationship between Orlando Health Imaging Centers and his organization supports the goal for expanding quality outpatient services and developing an unparalleled level of care.
“We are pleased to be here today for the opening of the Orlando Health Imaging Centers – Summeport as this center provides us with another opportunity to impact the lives of patients in West Orange County through efficient and effective diagnostics,” Dr. Chin added.
The Orlando Health Imaging Centers – Summerport is the sixth imaging facility to open in the Orlando Health network. The organization provides services at centers located in Altamonte Springs, Ocoee, Lake Mary and Spring Lake. Additionally, to continue supporting the needs of the growing Central Florida community, Orlando Health will soon open two new imaging centers. The first is located at 1111 W.
