“We understand that people have ongoing health issues, even in the face of COVID-19,” said Mike Locke, Operations Manager, PMI and PVMI. “We’re committed to providing imaging services so that patients can work with their healthcare providers to get the treatment they need. And, we do that in a safe and friendly environment.”
During COVID-19, the following diagnostic services are available at these imaging facilities:
- Computed Tomography (CT scan) – PMI and PVMI
- Mammography (Diagnostic only) – PMI and the BreastCare Center in Prescott Valley
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) – PMI and PVMI
- Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan – Yavapai Regional Medical Center (YRMC) East in Prescott Valley
- Ultrasound – PMI and PVMI
- X-rays – PMI and PVMI
Your Safety is First
How does our team safeguard your safety during a visit? A two-step screening process – by phone and in-person – ensures people are symptom-free when entering PMI, PVMI or other YRMC facilities for diagnostic imaging.
“Everyone, including patients and employees, have their temperatures taken before entering any of our Imaging Centers,” Locke said. “We’re also limiting the number of patients who are in our reception areas at any one time. Unless someone requires special assistance, only patients are allowed into our Centers.”
The reception areas are set up to ensure physical distancing. They’re also cleaned and sanitized every 30 to 60 minutes, depending on patient traffic. Equipment and screening rooms are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized between patients.
Regular Hours, Excellent Service
“These are challenging times,” said Locke. “We want the community and all healthcare providers to know that we’re here to provide important imaging services.”
For PMI and PVMI, that means maintaining their regular service hours of 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday and Saturdays by appointment. The BreastCare Center at YRMC is available by appointment.
Additionally, our Imaging Centers are accepting diagnostic imaging orders from other centers that may have closed during this time.
Need an x-ray? There’s no need to schedule an appointment, but you will be screened before entering PMI or PVMI.
Medicare, AHCCCS (Arizona’s Medicaid) and most commercial health plans are accepted at PMI, PVMI and all YRMC imaging facilities.
