Project: MRI Upgrades and Suite Renovation
Location: East Greenwich, RI
Year Completed: 2018
Project Manager: Mark Menard
This project added a new four-ton MRI machine to their facility. The machine needed two trucks, a crane, and about 10-12 people to get it into the building. In order to get the MRI into the building, one of the sidewalls needed to be removed. This is a second MRI machine in the facility and is the newest version of the MR2’s which has a bigger gantry, that space that you fit into, so it is a lot more comfortable for patients. Investing in this upgraded machine is expected to cut exam times by 20 percent, while also providing patients with clearer images in a faster time.
