Piedmont Medical Center is inviting the community to visit its new $1.4 million York Imaging Center.

The center, which recently began serving patients at 1795 Devinney Road, offers X-rays, CT scans, mammography and ultrasound services and bone density testing, officials said.

The state Department of Health and Environmental Control last fall authorized Piedmont to open the center, saying it will serve people “who lack convenient access to outpatient medical services such as imaging.”

The center will be open 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

PMC leaders said they had been talking with physicians who had been practicing in York about some of western York County’s greatest health care needs.

Imaging services closer to home and work for people in western York County was one of the top needs recommended by the physicians, PMC officials said.

“They felt like, with patients having to go further away, they would have to take more time off of work and it delayed the overall diagnosis of things they needed to get done,” said Christina Oh, PMC’s chief operating officer.

York Mayor Eddie Lee has been a longtime advocate for better health care in western York County.

“This is a quality of life issue,” he said. “Better health care is something that matters to all the people of western York County. It’s something that has been at the top of my list since I became mayor.”

In the months before opening, the hospital made improvements to the Devinney Road site at a cost of about $1.4 million, including renovations and equipment.
