At Greater Waterbury Imaging Center, the health and safety of our patients and staff is our number one priority. As a healthcare provider, we play a critical role in the health and safety of our patients and communities. Now more than ever, it is important that our patients, who walk through our doors seeking answers to their medical questions, feel safe and reassured. We also have a responsibility to maintain a safe and effective working environment for our associates that care for our patients each day.
We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) situation and are staying up-to-date with the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and local health departments throughout the CDI’s national network.
For any questions about your appointment, please call 203-573-7674.
For information on COVID-19 prevention, symptoms and what to do if you’re feeling sick, please visit the CDC website or contact your state health department hotline.
A Message To Our Patients
During this time, we are taking necessary steps to ensure that we continue to provide the highest quality of diagnostic imaging care to our patients, while keeping your health and safety at top of mind.
- All patients and associates are required to wear a mask.
- All patients are prescreened to verify that they are in good health and there are no signs or symptoms of COVID 19.
- The center is “wiped down continually throughout the day” and all MRI equipment and changing rooms are cleaned and sanitized before and after each patient.
- Reception areas are wiped down frequently, this includes chair arm rests, door handles, touch screens, table tops, countertops and we have temporarily removed all magazines as well.
- We are limiting the number of patients in the center at any one time, and encouraging those who can, to come alone.
- We will be asking patients to remove their mask before walking into the MRI room for safety reasons. Due to the magnets involved with an MRI exam, we can’t have any potential metal in the exam room. The masks may contain metal particles, therefore we will be asking patients to remove their masks prior to the exam.
To protect all of our patients and staff, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath), if you have traveled outside the country or on a cruise in the past 14 days, or if you have had close contact with any person, including healthcare workers, who are a lab-confirmed COVID-19 infected patient within the past 14 days, please call to reschedule your appointment. Please note our new hours: Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday closed.
We are committed to your safety, please visit our website or call 203-573-7103 for more information.
