Outpatient imaging center expands Driscoll services

Driscoll Children’s Imaging Center, offering diagnostic X-ray, ultrasound and MRI exams, opened its doors to patients on Feb. 2. The center is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and is located in the same building as Driscoll Children’s Urgent Care at 5945 Saratoga Blvd.

“Driscoll Children’s Hospital is excited to expand radiologic services in an outpatient setting here in Corpus Christi. 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.

Aiming to offer convenience, the center is open on Saturdays to meet the needs of busy working parents. Its Southside location is easily accessible, and staff can accommodate walk-in patients for general X-ray.

Families will be happy to find the same quality they expect from Driscoll at a reduced cost. Because patients will be scanned in an outpatient setting, a facility fee won’t be charged – a significant cost savings for parents.

The center was designed to be comfortable and inviting. In the MRI suite, for instance, patients can pick a movie to watch or listen to their own music during exams. They can also customize the room by choosing the color for the MRI machine to display.
