CHICAGO, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Smart Choice MRI, an independent MRI provider with locations across the Midwest, is expanding its Wisconsin footprint with two new clinics in Green Bay, WI and La Crosse, WI set to open this spring. Both areas currently have limited options for consumers to receive high-quality MRI exams for a value.
"I have seen first-hand the positive impact we can have in communities, and we are excited for the opportunity to serve both patients and providers in the Green Bay and La Crosse markets," said Rick Anderson, Chairman and CEO of Smart Choice MRI. "We believe consumers should have a choice where they receive care, and that starts with access to more high-quality options."
Quality is at the core of Smart Choice MRI; the company features leading GE 1.5T MRI technology and utilizes subspecialized radiologists at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. In addition to providing high-quality scans and reads, Smart Choice offers MRIs for thousands less than the average cost at a hospital or health system.
"The Smart Choice MRI model goes far beyond offering exceptional quality for a value. We care deeply about the patient experience and believe that everyone deserves to be treated with kindness, empathy, and respect," said Anderson. "We are proud to offer a consumer-driven model that focuses on making the visit as easy and stress-free as possible."
Smart Choice MRI opened its first location in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now operates 15 clinics across Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota. In 2018, the company made significant operational investments to further upgrade the patient experience including online scheduling, a new staff training platform, and online access to reports and images for both patients and providers. The new locations are part of an aggressive expansion plan throughout the Midwest and beyond.
Smart Choice MRI is changing the way healthcare is experienced. By adopting a consumer-driven model for traditionally high priced and inconvenient imaging exams, the company can offer MRIs at a significant value while providing exceptional quality and service. Smart Choice MRI utilizes GE 1.5T MRI technology, and scans are read by subspecialized radiologists at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic. Smart Choice MRI is accredited by the American College of Radiology and is in-network for most major insurers, including United Health Care, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana, and Cigna. Smart Choice MRI currently operates 15 locations in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Minnesota and will be expanding regionally and nationally over the next several years.
