Gerber Memorial streamlines cardiac imaging services under one roof at hospital
FREMONT – Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial has announced that all cardiac imaging services will be done at the hospital, located at 212 South Sullivan Avenue, Fremont, starting on Friday, Nov. 17. Any follow-up testing will also be done at the hospital.
On Nov. 17 onwards, patients who are to undergo imaging should check in at the front reception in the main hospital lobby, located on the first floor of the main hospital building. Those services include echocardiogram, or ultrasound of the heart, and stress testing such as treadmill stress test, stress echocardiogram and stress dobutamine.
“By streamlining our cardiac imaging services under one roof, we hope to promote convenience for patients and our ongoing effort to improve quality and the overall patient experience,” said Brian McClain, Director of Clinical and Ambulatory services. “Beginning Nov. 17, patients will have one central place for their cardiac imaging services and for any follow-up testing needs right here at the hospital.”
After Nov. 17, the Specialty Clinic, located in the basement of the Multispecialty Clinic at 230 West Oak Street, Fremont, will no longer perform cardiac imaging services. Patients and the public are being informed in coming days through letters, local media and social media.
