MRI RAMPS UP
BGSA owners and management are proud to announce, their MRI service is ramping up and patient scanning will commence soon. The scanner was installed October 21st, we are waiting for renovations to be complete and final government approvals to be obtained. BGSA would like to introduce our first MRI technologist, Charmaine Stewart, who has been instrumental in developing the services we will provide for our Physicians and their patients. She has done an amazing job with the information/ordering package, which all the physicians of Medicine Hat and surrounding area, all the way into Southwest Saskatchewan, have received describing our service and the procedures performed. If you are tired of waiting to get into an Alberta Health Services funded MRI to have your procedure performed, consider having it done in our clinic (talk to your Physician). BGSA is committed to providing you with a quality scan at a reasonable cost comparable to Calgary and Edmonton ($600.00 to $700.00). We would also encourage you to check your additional insurance plans as they may cover MRI services. For easier payment options, BGSA now accepts credit or debit cards.
