Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging (JHMI) sites have been busy this year as expansions to facilities and services promise quality care for more patients across the region. Expansions this last year included a new X-ray suite embedded with the orthopaedics practice in Odenton, construction underway for PET/CT at Green Spring Station and planning for a second location in Columbia.
Service Expansions Across JHMI
Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging continues to expand its cardiac services at outpatient sites. Cardiac MRI is now available at JHMI locations in Bethesda and at Green Spring Station. Other locations also expanded services including extended evening hours at White Marsh for MRI, ultrasound and breast imaging. JHMI sites continue to see an increase in patients self scheduling appointments online.
Planning Underway for Second JHMI Columbia Site
Progress continues toward a second JHMI location in the Columbia area. In an effort to better serve patients and meet demand in the area, a full-modality imaging center is being planned. A conceptual design plan is currently being finalized for the location.
Bringing Outpatient PET/CT to Green Spring Station
Construction is underway at Green Spring Station to build a PET/CT and Theranostics suite in the Pavilion I at the previous MRI/CT suite. The future clinical footprint footprint will have 4 uptake rooms. The new suite will open in 2023.
Johns Hopkins Expands Operations at Odenton Facility
In January 2022, Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging opened a state-of-the-art X-ray room within the Johns Hopkins orthopaedic practice at 1106 Annapolis Road in Odenton, Maryland. This addition has fostered a seamless transition for patients to receive the necessary imaging for a prompt diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up care all in one location. With the X-ray team fully staffed, they have provided over 2,000 patient images within the past year. “We are looking toward expanding hours in the future to offer more evening appointments,” said Noel Foster, Columbia site manager who also oversees operations at the Odenton location. The orthopaedic division is grateful to have the team in their suite. This partnership has not only improved provider satisfaction, but also enhanced the patients’ experience by having imaging performed at the same location as their orthopaedic appointment.
