DI Test(s) Wait Times:

Reducing wait times is important to us so that our patients can be properly supported and continue their health care journey. We understand that you may be anxious to have your appointment and the wait for your test/procedure can feel long but please know that we are doing our best to improve and reduce your wait with additional service hours and hiring additional staff.

Our patients knowing what is happening is also important. So as part of our efforts to keep you informed, we are happy to share with you the estimated wait times for various Diagnostic Imaging tests and procedures as of Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

Similar to the triage process in the Emergency Department, the Diagnostics Imaging Team (DI Team) receives and reviews all test requests and requisitions to determine level of urgency. The DI Team always sets aside time to support inpatient and urgent test requests. If you are concerned about the wait time for your appointment, please contact your primary care provider for more information.
