Nebraska’s Largest Radiology Group Buys Land in Lincoln
Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI; www.AMImaging.com), Nebraska’s largest independent radiology group, has purchased land located at 7545 Pioneers Blvd in Lincoln to begin an expansion project. The 2.35 acres of land is adjacent to their current building and will allow the group to begin a multi-year development project.
The new construction will enable Advanced Medical Imaging to increase imaging services for the region. AMI offerings include MRI, CT, nuclear medicine, X-rays, and interventional radiology used for pain management, minimally invasive disease treatment, and aesthetics. More mammograms are performed at the AMI Women’s Center than any other private office in the state.
“This is something that we have envisioned for many years. With more and more healthcare moving to outpatient, it just makes sense that we continue to grow,” says Georgia Blobaum, AMI’s Chief Operations Officer. “We believe in the importance of providing a high-quality, low-cost imaging option for the community and surrounding areas. Positive patient experience always guides our ambition and this expansion will allow us to continue to do that.”
The practice has grown from just 10 radiologists in 2001 to over 30 physicians by the end of 2017. The group has a large number of subspecialists, which is a testament to the strength of the health care community within the capital city. Fellowship trained subspecialists within Advanced Medical Imaging include Pediatric, Breast, Musculoskeletal, Body Imaging, Nuclear Medicine, and Neuroradiology, which diagnoses abnormalities in the central and peripheral nervous system, spine, and head and neck. AMI also has a growing number of Interventional Radiologists. These physicians are the surgeons of radiology and are able to treat conditions using minimally invasive procedures.
One of the many benefits of this growth is the opportunity for Advanced Medical Imaging to become a more vested community partner and have the ability to give back in greater ways. The staff at AMI have a strong sense responsibility for the success of the community and the wellbeing of its citizens. Many of AMI’s physicians are proud local businesses owners and help lead programs designed to benefit the underprivileged in Nebraska and abroad.
Not only does Advanced Medical Imaging provide services for the Lincoln area, but their physicians exclusively read radiology images for nearly half of the Critical Access Hospitals in rural Nebraska. They are passionate about providing high quality care for the entire state and surrounding areas. Although it is common in the industry, AMI does not utilize an over-night service for emergency calls. Their radiologists are on call 24/7 to provide the best care when patients need it most. AMI’s physicians also provide all radiology services for two regional health centers, St. Elizabeth Hospital in Lincoln and Mercy Medical of Sioux City, IA.
Advanced Medical Imaging is located in Lincoln at 7601 Pioneers Blvd. Information on their services can be found on their website at www.AMImaging.com or by calling them at (402) 484-6677.
