On May 17th, 2018, Jefferson Outpatient Imaging celebrated the opening of its new Malvern location with a private open house event. Key business partners and medical professionals enjoyed refreshments, toured the facility, and met members of the Jefferson Health and Jefferson Outpatient Imaging leadership team.
Dr. Vijay M. Rao, MD, Senior Vice President and Chair, Enterprise Radiology and Imaging, Jefferson Radiology, expressed her congratulatory sentiments to her team. In 2002, her team was responsible for approximately 300,000 studies annually. In 2018, that number is approaching 1 million studies annually, with over 70 radiologists spanning the region.
And volume isn’t the only feather in their cap. The Philadelphia region is lucky to be home to one of the top radiology departments in the country. JOI offers exceptional care by pairing leading-edge technology with nationally recognized physicians. In fact, JOI makes it possible to access the same expertise that is trusted by Philadelphia’s professional sports teams throughout Philadelphia and the suburbs. Patients can rest assured that studies are reviewed by sub-specialized radiologists (radiologists who have become experts in even more specific areas of radiology). Becoming a sub-specialized radiologist requires a five-year radiology residency in addition to one year dedicated to the Physician’s chosen sub-specialty.
Beyond state-of-the-art facilities and best-in-class physicians, there is another area of focus of which JOI is particularly proud— human connection. When the future of your health is the topic at hand, having an authentic human connection with someone who cares and “sees beyond the study” makes the process easier to bear. This commitment to “patient focus” is evident throughout the process, from the moment you make an appointment through follow-up patient care. JOI has helped thousands of locals find comfort in their medical screening experiences. From neuro to pediatric, interventional, musculoskeletal, orthopedic radiology and more, Jefferson Outpatient Imaging utilizes a winning combination of cutting-edge technology, industry-leading sub-specialized Jefferson radiologists, and focus on patient experience to deliver a superior service for every patient.
The new facility in Malvern joins the Collegeville, East Norriton and Center City offices in the Jefferson family of imaging centers. It is located at 650 Carnegie Boulevard, Suite 240, Malvern, PA 19355, near Routes 202 and 30 in the Wegmans and Target shopping center. The building is wheelchair accessible and offers plenty of free on-site parking. To schedule either a day or evening appointment, call 215-503-4900.
