  • Challenge

    Access to imaging services can be a challenge for some Veterans. A comment card revealed the hardship to access imaging services based on the travel distance. This Veteran gave voice to a solution for imaging services more conveniently located in a clinic at another campus. The problem was that the other location lacked a suitable building to house the equipment. Establishing a permanent brick-and-mortar facility would take time to fund and build, but it wasn’t off the table. In the meantime they needed a temporary solution to increase access and reduce radiology wait times.

     

    Solution

    After careful collaboration, we proposed a solution to create a temporary imaging clinic using multiple modular buildings linked together to form an integrated imaging center. This “pre-fabricated” construction solution could be stood up quickly, house the required services, and utilize a limited footprint. Once the permanent facility opened in the future, these modular buildings could then be repurposed as office space.

    The project began with the delivery and set up of the pre-wired, pre-plumbed modular structures in a vacant field at the campus, followed by the delivery and installation of the imaging equipment; including Magnetic Resonance, Computed Tomography, Radiography and Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound. Working together, the Outpatient Imaging Clinic Expansion project was completed on-time and on-budget.

  • X-ray for Active Duty Military and Veterans

    The complexity of injuries that can arise from combat situations is challenging.  Standard radiography is often the first diagnostic test for most chest, orthopedic and trauma patients. Complex cases are often referred for additional medical imaging which may result in scheduling delays, in higher radiation exposure and a delay in diagnosis and treatment that could also mean more anxiety, inconvenience and discomfort for the patient.

  • Cardiac Care for Active Duty Military and Veterans

    Cardiovascular disease is the number-one killer of Americans, and the leading cause of hospitalization in the VA health care system.1 Those who have served face distinct health challenges, including higher rates of coronary heart disease and heart attack than their civilian peers.2
