Mount Pleasant, SC -- East Cooper Medical Center recently announced that Charleston Imaging has become a division of the hospital's growing system. The deal was finalized Wednesday, Jan. 19.
Founded in 2006 by David Goltra, MD, Charleston Imaging is an outpatient diagnostic and interventional radiology center accredited by the American College of Radiology. Charleston Imaging has developed a reputation of providing superior clinical images, as well as excellence in interventional procedures, and will continue to offer patients the same high-quality, compassionate care.
Located near the I-526 and Long Point Road intersection at 582 Lone Tree Drive in Mt. Pleasant, Charleston Imaging will continue to operate under the same name, but shall be identified as a division of East Cooper Medical Center.
"We are extremely proud of the unique nature of Charleston Imaging," said Dr. Goltra. "We can image, diagnose and treat patients in one office, and typically in a short amount of time. The partnership (with ECMC) will allow us to offer patients even more diagnostic services and an expansion of care."
"Charleston Imaging's focus will remain the same--to offer comprehensive radiology services by highly trained specialists. Now, Charleston Imaging's patients will benefit from the easily accessible continuum-of-care provided at East Cooper Medical Center--care that patients travel the globe to receive," said Janie Sinacore-Jaberg, chief executive officer of East Cooper Medical Center.
"We're delighted Charleston Imaging will be joining the East Cooper family. Their excellent reputation speaks volumes about the quality of care they provide, and their mission fits perfectly with ours--to provide high quality healthcare services to the Lowcountry."
