Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy Is On The Move

The Tribune (NZ) - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy will open its doors at its new Grey Street site at 1pm next Mon­day herald­ing a new era in the pro­vi­sion of com­pre­hen­sive imag­ing ser­vices. The new site, to be called the Ao­rangi Spe­cial­ist Cen­tre, will of­fer the most up-to-date, state-of-the-art fa­cil­i­ties in NZ. The equip­ment, in­clud­ing the lat­est Philips In­ge­nia 3T MRI, a low dose CT scan­ner, five ul­tra­sound ma­chines and two dig­i­tal X-Ray ma­chines, has been in­stalled, tested and ac­cred­ited at 175 Grey Street. Plan­ning for the re­lo­ca­tion has been un­der­way for the last 12 months. Gen­eral Man­ager, Dun­can Scott, in­tends the move to be as seam­less as pos­si­ble. Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy will close its doors at mid­day this Fri­day and re­open at 175 Grey Street at 1pm Mon­day. Any pa­tients who ur­gently re­quire imag­ing ser­vices be­tween those times can be seen by City Doc­tors in Vic­to­ria Av­enue. “Pa­tients will ap­pre­ci­ate our new Grey Street fa­cil­ity which is de­signed for cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion. We have in­creased our re­cep­tion, cus­tomer care and ra­di­og­ra­phy staff in an­tic­i­pa­tion of a greater de­mand on our lead­ing edge fa­cil­i­ties,” Dun­can Scott says. “The Ao­rangi Spe­cial­ist Cen­tre has been care­fully de­signed to be­come one of the pre-em­i­nent med­i­cal di­ag­nos­tic cen­tres in New Zealand. The con­fig­u­ra­tion has been metic­u­lously planned to en­sure the most ef­fec­tive use of space and work flow.”

The fea­tures of the de­vel­op­ment are:

• A cen­tral atrium and re­cep­tion area that is cus­tom built to

wel­come pa­tients and at­tend to their needs and re­fer­rals • The new com­plex houses some of the most up-to-date

med­i­cal imag­ing equip­ment in New Zealand • The con­struc­tion of the build­ing is en­ergy ef­fi­cient with the lat­est in­su­la­tion, light­ing and air con­di­tion­ing fa­cil­i­ties. There is plenty of nat­u­ral light • The spa­cious, land­scaped grounds pro­vide 95 free park­ing spa­ces, more than suf­fi­cient for lo­cal and out-of-town pa­tients • The ex­pan­sive area of land will fu­ture proof the med­i­cal

com­mu­nity for fur­ther de­vel­op­ment in the years ahead • Pa­tients will ben­e­fit from the en­hanced sys­tems put in

place to main­tain the high stan­dards al­ready achieved • The fa­cil­ity will en­able Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy to re­tain

and at­tract spe­cial­ist staff • Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy has been joined by Orthopaedic Cen­tre spe­cial­ists to pro­vide a one-stop shop for their pa­tients • The Grey Street lo­ca­tion is cen­tral and ac­ces­si­ble for lo­cal peo­ple and out-of-town pa­tients, handy to GPs, spe­cial­ists, Crest Hos­pi­tal and Palmer­ston North Hos­pi­tal. Dun­can Scott em­pha­sises that Broad­way Ra­di­ol­ogy is lo­cally owned and op­er­ated and the multi-mil­lion de­vel­op­ment demon­strates its on-go­ing com­mit­ment to Manawatu and the sur­round­ing re­gion and its de­sire to pro­vide op­ti­mum ser­vice to lo­cal peo­ple. “This pur­chase and de­vel­op­ment on the for­mer Ao­rangi site, al­lows us to en­large our foot­print in the city as the ma­jor provider of med­i­cal di­ag­nos­tic ser­vices,” he says. “We wel­come new and ex­ist­ing pa­tients at the Ao­rangi Spe­cial­ist Cen­tre from next Mon­day.”
