Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Announcement
Effective May 1st Oregon Imaging Centers will be able to once again be able provide all urgent and non-urgent imaging needs to Lane County; this includes preventative screening exams such as annual mammograms. We understand many in our community have had to delay their exams due to the COVID crisis. We will be making every effort to schedule and reschedule all exam as soon as possible, but for the safety of all we need to start slowly, we ask for your patience and understanding during this time and accept that your appointment may be scheduled further out than we would typically be able to provide.
Oregon Imaging Centers is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all patients and staff. We care about your safety and the safety of our community, and as such, we have removed chairs from our waiting rooms and implemented a new “wait-in-car check in process” in an effort to increase physical distancing. We require patients to arrive individually for exams (a single care provider can be accommodated for physical needs if necessary), and we are requiring patients to wear a mask or cloth face cover to their appointment. Patients over 60 or those with compromised immune systems must balance the risk-benefit of their exam prior to schedule, if you have questions or are uncertain of the need for an appointment we urge you to discuss this with your Clinician.
In order to make our facility safe for everyone, please try to adhere to the following guidelines:
- Wear a mask or cloth face cover
- Arrive individually, no more than one care provider if necessary
- Take advantage of our text check in process
In light of the COVID-19 crisis, and in an effort to protect all of our patients and staff we at Oregon Imaging Centers are requesting patients and family members arriving at one of our facilities to adhere to the CDC recommendation of wearing cloth face coverings during your visit.
