Magee-Womens Imaging Services to Launch at UPMC McKeesport
PITTSBURGH, Feb. 27, 2015
– This spring, the McKeesport and surrounding communities will have access to a wide range of imaging services offered by Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC
with the opening of a full woman’s imaging site at the hospital.
In March, Magee-Womens Imaging at UPMC McKeesport
will begin offering services for women, including mammography, breast ultrasound, radioactive seed localization and bone density scanning. Building upon the recent addition of Magee-Womens Surgical Associates to the hospital, the imaging services support UPMC’s commitment to women’s health in McKeesport and the surrounding communities.
“This partnership with Magee means women in McKeesport and the nearby communities won’t have to travel to Pittsburgh for most of their imaging needs,” said Mark Sevco, president, UPMC McKeesport and UPMC East. “UPMC is committed to bringing the highest quality care to all of our patients. With this new site, the women will have access to same day appointments, high-quality readings that can lead to more accurate diagnoses, state of the art technology and subspecialty trained physicians.”
In April, UPMC McKeesport will hold an open house for members of the community to learn more about their imaging options.
“Access to a fully equipped imaging site means women can stay close to home while still receiving superior care,” said Leslie Davis
, president of Magee and executive vice president and chief operating officer of UPMC’s Health Services Division. “We know that too often women concentrate on keeping their families healthy and run out of time to care for themselves. We hope that by bringing the strength of Magee’s services to communities serviced by UPMC McKeesport, we are making it easier for women to access the care they need and deserve.”
