Exams at Samaritan Hospital
Walk-ins are welcome at the hospital diagnostic imaging department from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, for any exam not requiring advanced scheduling (fluoroscopy, CT, ultrasound, echo or nuclear medicine). All exams require an order from your healthcare provider. If your provider sends an order to us that does not require you to be scheduled, all you have to do is sign in at the admitting reception area in the main hospital lobby. The department staff will come to the main waiting area to escort you to the proper imaging area. The report of the exam will typically be sent to your provider in less than 24 hours.
Exams at Urgent Care
Samaritan Urgent Care, located in the Samaritan Clinic building, has a general x-ray room. This is also the location of our new state-of-the-art MRI unit. See the receptionist at the urgent care desk in suite 100 to sign in. The report of your exam will typically be sent to your provider in less than 24 hours by certified radiologists.
Walk-ins are welcome at the Urgent Care site from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.
Women's Imaging Center
The Women's Imaging Center, located inside Samaritan Hospital, provides digital mammography and osteoporosis DEXA scanning. These exams must be scheduled in advance. Once scheduled, go to the admitting area in the main hospital lobby to sign in. Our mammography technologist will meet you there and escort you to the Women's Imaging Center for your exam. We are open Monday through Friday with some evening and Saturday appointments available.
