Good Sam’s imaging, lab and pre-op clinic move to Neville

Oct 31,2012
To increase accessibility and to better serve patients on the campus of Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, our outpatient lab services, many outpatient imaging services and the pre-operative clinic will soon move from their current locations to the newly-renovated first floor of the Charles S. Neville Medical Office Building, at 3615 NW Samaritan Drive, directly across the street from the hospital.

These moves will greatly enhance convenience for patients in many ways. Patients will no longer have to make their way to the ground floor of the hospital for laboratory tests and many imaging procedures, and registration for lab, imaging and pre-operative services will all be done at the same counter in the new location. With the pre-operative clinic right there, patients can complete pre-surgery imaging, lab tests and check-in procedures in one convenient location.

Other features of the newly-remodeled first floor of the Neville Building include:

• A mammography suite designed to make the experience as comfortable as possible, with its own separate waiting area and children’s play area. All Samaritan Corvallis Mammography services will be offered in the new location, including digital mammograms, ultrasound, and biopsies

• Additional imaging services for outpatients including 3T MRI, X-ray and ultrasound

• A larger waiting area for the outpatient lab, and a third blood draw room to facilitate shorter wait times

Patients and visitors are encouraged to access the building from the new main entrance, accessible from the parking lot on the west side of the Neville Building. Several handicap accessible parking spaces are available near the main entrance. A back entrance to the building faces Samaritan Drive.

The outpatient lab, imaging departments and pre-operative clinic will be available in the new space beginning Tuesday, Nov. 13, with almost no interruption to services. (No mammograms will be scheduled for Nov. 8, 9 or 12, as equipment is moved, but phone calls will still be answered and returned and future appointments will still be scheduled during this time.)

“We are pleased to announce these moves, because whenever we can offer more convenience and comfort for patients, we also provide a more healing environment,” said Good Sam’s Vice President of Ancillary Services Scott Wilson. “Not only is it a well thought-out, convenient space for patients, but it is beautiful as well, and I believe patients benefit from that.”
