Longtime Local Medical Imaging Centers Unveil New Name

by Community Outreach and Philanthropy, (928) 771-5686 | Jul 28, 2022

Prescott Medical Imaging (PMI) and Prescott Valley Medical Imaging (PVMI) recently introduced new names as part of Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s (YRMC) affiliation with Dignity Health. The outpatient imaging facilities are now:

  • Dignity Health Imaging Center, Prescott
  • Dignity Health Imaging Center, Prescott Valley

“This change is part of the rebranding rollout plan launched in conjunction with the YRMC– Dignity Health affiliation,” says Ken Boush, Director of Marketing and Communications at Dignity Health, YRMC. “Patients and community members will soon see new signage at both imaging centers. We want them to be aware that the name change is related to YRMC’s network-wide rebrand. It will not affect the care or services at the Dignity Health Imaging Center in Prescott or Prescott Valley.”

For example, experienced, local radiologists will continue to interpret imaging studies and procedures performed at both locations, according to Mary Sterling, Imaging Services Director at Dignity Health, YRMC.

“Our locally based radiology team has always differentiated us from other imaging centers, many of which use radiologists based in markets outside of Yavapai County to interpret imaging studies,” says Sterling. “At our Imaging Centers in Prescott and Prescott Valley, an imaging study performed in our community is interpreted by radiologists who live and work in our community.”

Sterling adds that Dignity Health Imaging Center radiologists have long-established, working relationships with physicians throughout the area. This collaboration, she says, is a benefit to both individual patients and overall quality of care.

Dignity Health Imaging Center radiologists and radiologic imaging technologists also are:

  • Certified by the American College of Radiologists (ACR) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
  • Experts in advanced radiology modalities
  • Graduates of leading medical schools and radiologic technology programs

Michael Locke, Operations Manager, Dignity Health Imaging Center, notes that the Imaging Centers have also earned ACR accreditation.

“This means our Prescott and Prescott Valley facilities have undergone rigorous, objective evaluations by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists,” Locke explains.

He also emphasizes that both facilities – along with the Breast Care Center at Dignity Health, YRMC – will continue to offer an all-inclusive menu of computer-enhanced, digital imaging services.

YRMC’s Imaging Center facilities – both of which may be reached at (928) 771-7577 – are located at:

  • 810 Whipple Street, Prescott, Arizona 86301
  • 7700 East Florentine Road, Building B, Suite 105, Prescott Valley, Arizona 86314
