The move from the Pioneer Community Hospital on Cherry Street to the newly constructed hospital at the corner of Highways 9 and 15 has begun.

One of the first departments to move is Radiology with the 16-slice CT scanner.

GE Medical moved the CT scanner on June 17 and is in the process of re-installing it at the new hospital.

“The move has affected us, but we are still offering full services,” said Leigh Davis, Radiology director.

Since the CT scan has moved, Pioneer Community Hospital of Choctaw is using a mobile CT scan.

“We have a mobile CT scan right now. There is no down time in services,” said Davis.

She wants patients to know that all of the offered radiology services are available throughout the moving process.

“All of our services, except ultrasound, are offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,” said Davis.

Some of the radiology services offered at PCH-Choctaw include: Routine Radiology (x-rays), CT scans including head, sinus, spine, chest and more, Ultrasound for thyroid, testicular, OB, abdominal/gallbladder and more.

For more information about the Radiology Department call 285-6235 or 285-1930.
