Tower Saint John's Imaging Opens
New Outpatient Imaging Center is Joint Venture with Saint John’s

A new state-of-the-art, service-oriented, outpatient imaging center, Tower Saint John’s Imaging, opened its doors November 15 as a joint venture of Saint John’s Health Center and Tower Imaging Medical Group. The new facility is located just one block away from Saint John’s Health Center.

The two-story, 13,000 square-foot imaging center, located at 2202 Wilshire Blvd., offers patients from Santa Monica and the greater West Los Angeles area a full spectrum of diagnostic and interventional outpatient radiology services in a beautifully designed, technologically advanced setting.

Among the services offered at Tower Saint John’s Imaging are: CT, PET/CT, MRI and MRA exams on both a 1.5 Tesla High-Field magnet and a 0.7 Hitachi Altaire OPEN MRI (exclusive to Tower Saint John’s Imaging), Digital Radiography, Digital Fluoroscopy, Pain Management Procedures, Ultrasound, Heart Scans, Lung Scans and Virtual Colonoscopy.

“With the opening of Tower Saint John’s Imaging, we are able to better provide the highest quality imaging services that our referring physicians and patients have come to rely on from Tower Imaging,” says Arnold Vinstein, M.D. and CEO of Tower Imaging Medical Group. “Our new facility includes the latest technology in imaging equipment, with professional staff and computer systems that provide seamless scheduling and the quickest possible delivery of reports/images to referring physicians.”

Tower Imaging Medical Group opened its first office in 1979 and is a California Professional Corporation of subspecialty trained, board certified radiologists offering full-spectrum inpatient and outpatient diagnostic and interventional radiology services throughout the Los Angeles area. Over the last 25 years, the group has grown into one of the finest radiology subspecialty groups in the nation, and its member physicians hold national leadership positions in such organizations as the Society of Skeletal Radiology, Society for Breast Imaging and the American College of Radiology.

Ranked the number one community hospital in California, Saint John’s Health Center combines traditional care with advanced technology and provides a full spectrum of treatment and diagnostic services in cardiac care, cancer care, orthopedics, labor and delivery, critical care and other specialties. Later this year, Saint John’s will officially open its new four-story, 150-room inpatient facility, the North Pavilion, as part of an extensive rebuilding plan. The North Pavilion features private patient rooms, a wireless communication network and innovative amenities designed to enhance the healing environment.
