JAMESTOWN - In a move aimed at strengthening the local healthcare landscape, Jamestown Radiologists, the city's only locally-owned radiology practice, announced that it has acquired Jamestown Medical Imaging, the full-service MRI, CT and Ultrasound suite located at The Riverwalk Center, 15 South Main St.
"This acquisition further enhances the ability of our practice to serve the imaging needs of the Jamestown community and surrounding area," Ronald D. Klizek, M.D., president, Jamestown Radiologists said. "Ultimately, we believe this development will benefit the patients who need our services, which is the mission of all providers."
In addition to the Jamestown Medical Imaging office, Jamestown Radiologists provides services at its office location at 31 Sherman St. They are also the exclusive provider of radiology services at WCA Hospital.

Jamestown Medical Imaging provides CT, Ultrasound and Open MRI technology, a design which features the advantages of an easily accessible open magnet, providing the patient with a more comfortable, less confined MRI experience.

"No issues are more important in healthcare today than access to and coverage for needed services. With our acquisition, we are ensuring the people of Jamestown, the Southern Tier and northern Pennsylvania will continue to have access to quality services provided by dedicated local physicians," Klizek continued.
