State-of-the-Art Diagnostic Imaging Center Offers No-Wait Imaging A new, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging center at NW Indiana ER & Hospital in Hammond is taking appointments for outpatient imaging.

Its imaging department offers a complete scope of imaging needs including MRI, CT, X-ray and ultrasound to ER patients and the public as an outpatient service. NW Indiana ER & Hospital was conceived with a simple, yet visionary idea – to bring quick and compassionate, concierge-level emergency care to the Region. Scott Samlan, M.D., chief executive officer, and Daniel Irving, M.D., chief operating officer, partnered with Matthew Freeman, M.D; Will Curry, M.D.; and Adam Glassman, M.D., to bring the idea to fruition. The group of board-certified emergency physicians purchased land, broke ground, and managed the development of the exceptional facility. “We’ve got something really special here, and we’re excited to share it with the entire Region,” said Dr. Samlan. “Our patient-first approach to emergency care and hospital services ensures that patients spend less time waiting for care and that they leave our facility with a better understanding of their visit.” who staff the ER & Hospital, allowing them to quickly determine the type, severity and location of an injury within minutes. The immediate access to imaging technology also significantly reduces wait times for emergency room and hospital patients. “It is an honor to work with such a phenomenal team of health care professionals, who through collaboration and dedication, offer a higher standard of care to the people of our community,” said Victoria Parsino, senior MRI technologist. “With the prime focus being patient comfort and satisfaction, there is not a sense of being rushed along throughout our facility. And by building a family atmosphere of professionals with one common goal in mind, our founding physician partners have really created a valuable offering for the region,” said Parsino. The Diagnostic Imaging Center is at the south end of the hospital and features a 1.5 Tesla MRI Unit, digital radiography X-Ray, GE Optima CT Scan and an onsite GE ultrasound unit. Same-day appointments for outpatient imaging are available, and all imaging is evaluated by a team of expert physicians, radiologists and technologists with reads provided in less than an hour.
