Kiwi-owned Horizon Radiology is opening a new radiology clinic in South Auckland next month due to an increase in demand for its services.
The new expanded services clinic will be located in a large integrated medical centre, which will include an urgent care facility as well as general practice, pharmacy, physiotherapist and dentist. The centre will be located on Watford Street in Otara and is due to open on 10 April.
Horizon Radiology managing director Mary Gordon says their new clinic will be much bigger than the old one, which was located across the road.
“It’s a really exciting opportunity for us to open in this new, larger clinic which will offer x-rays and ultrasounds. In our old clinic across the road we only offered x-rays,” Mary says.
Horizon Radiology started in 2003 and is Auckland’s largest community based radiology provider. It has 16 clinics across the Auckland region offering a range of diagnostic imaging services including x-rays, pregnancy scans, general and MSK ultrasounds and steroid injections.
“Horizon is also an approved provider to perform immigration chest x-rays at our clinics in Queen Street and Manukau.”
High standard of care
Mary says patients at Horizon Radiology can expect a high standard of care in a caring, customer-focused environment.
“We have highly skilled and experienced clinicians working in our clinics right across Auckland offering expert care. We actively support and fund in-house and external ongoing development and clinical training for staff to keep up to date with the latest developments.”
Horizon Radiology also regularly updates its equipment.
“We have an ongoing equipment acquisitions and maintenance plan as we are committed to re-investing back into the business to ensure our equipment is the best,” she says.
Mary says more women choose to have their pregnancy scans at Horizon Radiology then anywhere else in Auckland.
“We can also offer 3D, 4D scans and a live recording for a minimal cost on a USB sticks at certain Horizon clinics, should expectant parents want them.”
She recommends GPs use InteleConnect to securely access their referred patient’s images and reports online to stay informed about their progress.
“GPs can have confidence in our highly skilled clinicians and latest equipment and know their patient is receiving a high standard of care.”
