Cincinnati VA Medical Center to open imaging center
CORRYVILLE, Ohio (Adam Clements) -- Some positive news today from the Cincinnati VA Medical Center as it opens its brand new imaging center.
VA-related news seems to be of the negative variety. Patients are reporting month long waits to be seen for initial visits. It hasn't been a good run.
Friday it's a different story, at least here locally. A ribbon cutting ceremony will usher in a new state of the art facility. It includes nine thousand square feet, new CT scanners, new MRI machines, new recovery and waiting space.
The new space will give physicians at the hospital an opportunity to see more patients and cut down on the length of time a vet has to wait to be seen by a doctor. "I came to the Cincinnati VA Medical Center about a year and a half ago and we experienced those same problems, the problems were there, we did have the wait times and things like that but we were able to address it," says Dr. A.J. Malhotra, chief radiologist at the center.
"I know we have high patient satisfaction scores," says Denise Kerr. "I get comments all the time on Facebook, in letters to the editor, people are very happy with the care they receive here."
The ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for ten o'clock Friday morning. Clermont County Commissioner Bob Proud will be the featured speaker.
