Driscoll imaging center opens on Southside

Driscoll Children’s Imaging Center, offering diagnostic X-ray, ultrasound and MRI exams, opened on the Southside on Feb. 2.

Located in the same building as Driscoll Children’s Urgent Care at 5945 Saratoga Blvd., the center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

“Driscoll Children’s Hospital is excited to expand radiologic services in an outpatient setting. The center is specifically designed to meet the needs of our growing pediatric population in Corpus Christi and the neighboring communities we proudly serve,” said Laura Zamora, physician practice administrator.

“It’s staffed with our radiologic and ultrasound technologists who specialize in pediatric imaging and have state and national licensure. Every member of our staff takes pride in going the extra mile to ensure our patients get the highest quality imaging exam and feel as comfortable as possible.”

Families can expect the same quality they expect from Driscoll Children’s Hospital at a reduced cost. Because patients will be scanned in an outpatient setting, a facility fee won’t be charged, which is a cost saver for parents.
