Patient Exp​erience

When you step into any of our facilities, you enter a vibrant, kid-friendly atmosphere. Our spaces are designed to make families feel comfortable — from waiting room activities to themed exam rooms.

You are encouraged to stay with your child and participate during procedures. Experience has taught us that, for almost all procedures, a familiar face reduces a child's anxiety and helps the procedure run more smoothly.

Our Commitment to You & Your C​hild

Our Department of Medical Imaging is a leader in the Image Gently campaign, an international coalition that educates all providers to “child-size” radiation doses.

We’re accredited by the American College of Radiology in CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound. This ensures our equipment, staff and standards deliver the best possible imaging experience.

The department invests in the most technologically advanced innovations. Our new CT Flash scanner images patients so quickly it reduces the need for sedation while maintaining the highest image quality and delivering the lowest possible radiation dose.

We’re also highly committed to safety, quality and research .
