If you have been suffering from back pain, now might be the time for an
MRI to help your health care provider diagnose the problem and develop
a treatment plan. Through December 31, 2019, St. John’s Medical
Center is offering a special on lumbar spine MRIs. The special price of
$750 includes interpretation by on-site, board-certified radiologists
and applies only to lumbar spine MRIs without contrast.
“Our patients who have high out-of-pocket health costs due to their
insurance status may find this seasonal discount to be particularly valuable,”
said Karen Connelly, communications officer. “We want to reduce
the barriers to care so that all community members can receive the quality
care we are able to provide at our Five-Star hospital."
To receive the discount for the lumbar spine MRI, you should meet with
your health care provider and request an order for an MRI at St. John’s.
Once you have the order, call the scheduling office at 307.739.7531 (Monday–Friday,
8 am–5 pm) to book your appointment for an MRI. If the order is
filed electronically by your provider, St. John’s Medical Center
will contact you to schedule your appointment. St. John’s MRI is
open seven days a week, 8 am–5 pm.
The MRI at St. John’s has earned a gold seal of accreditation from
the American College of Radiology (ACR). It is only awarded to facilities
that meet ACR standards for image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy
of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs.
“The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level
of image quality and patient safety,” said Michelle Kren, the administrative
director of diagnostic imaging. “I am extremely proud of the entire
radiology department for earning this distinction.”
