Northside Hospital is pleased to announce the expansion of its radiology services with the opening of a new outpatient medical imaging center in Buford. Northside/Sugar Hill Imaging provides high-quality advanced imaging services including digital x-ray, digital screening mammography with computer-aided detection (CAD), bone densitometry and computed tomography (CT) services for patients of all ages, with a shorter commute and free parking. The facility began seeing patients Feb. 20.
“We are excited that Gwinnett County families can now access state-of-the-art imaging services, for which Northside is known, that better serve their needs and are all much closer to home,” said Lisa Gilman-Lowery, manager of radiology services for Northside/Sugar Hill Imaging.
All images are read and interpreted by an on site, board-certified radiologist, who, along side Northside’s staff of registered technologists, provide the highest level of customer service. Through the hospital’s Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS), additional radiologists and physicians can view images from any location, in order to consult on a case, resulting in faster diagnosis and treatment.
Northside is highly respected in the community for its state-of-the-art imaging services and has ranked number one for seven consecutive years by metro Atlanta consumers in the National Research Corporation’s annual Healthcare Market Guide. Annually, nearly 500,000 imaging procedures are performed at Northside Hospital’s network of imaging facilities in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Buford, Canton, Cumming, Dawsonville, Holly Springs, Johns Creek, Marietta and Woodstock.
Northside/Sugar Hill Imaging is located at 4700 Nelson Brogdon Boulevard, Suite 100, in Buford. Walk-ins are welcome, with a referral. To schedule an appointment, call 404-851-6577.
