WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its commitment to connecting the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast communities to highly complex medical care, Tampa General Hospital (TGH) has acquired Palm Beach Radiology in North Palm Beach, Fla. Effective Oct. 1, 2022, the full-service radiology center will be known as TGH Imaging and will bring together essential assets to significantly increase access, maximize efficiency, and continue to provide high-quality images and excellent service to patients and physicians in the area. The same experienced team of radiologists, technologists, and support staff will continue to serve the community.

"Adding a highly experienced and clinically excellent team such as Palm Beach Radiology will round out our services offerings to the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast communities," said Sherri Lewman, senior vice president of enterprise imaging, Tampa General. "Patients in the area can now receive imaging exams within the Tampa General system, making for a more seamless experience."

Palm Beach Radiology, now TGH Imaging, is an imaging center accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Board-certified, on-site radiologists work as a team with highly trained technologists to offer patients high-quality exam results, often available on the same day. As a diagnostic resource for both patients and physicians, TGH Imaging offers a range of exams, including high-field, short-bore MRI (including breast MRI), multidetector CT, image-guided biopsies, 3D mammography, ultrasound, bone density scan, and digital X-ray.

"This is an exciting opportunity for us to be part of an academic medical center that expands care options to our community while continuing the level of care and services that our patients and referring physicians have come to expect from us since we opened our doors in 2007," said Dr. Donald Goodwin, radiologist and co-founder of Palm Beach Radiology. "We are eager to leverage the expertise and resources of Tampa General to provide another level of support for our patients."

TGH Imaging will remain in the same Palm Beach Radiology location – 733 U.S. Highway 1, Building 2B in North Palm Beach, 561-841-8588. "Patients will continue to see the same expert and caring team for their imaging needs," said Goodwin.

For the past two years, Tampa General has been creating a framework of state-of-the-art services for patients in the Palm Beach and Treasure Coast areas with the expertise and innovation of a preeminent academic medical center. The Florida East Coast initiative includes alliances with Cancer Center of South Florida and Gastro Group of the Palm Beaches, along with establishing TGH General Surgeons of the Palm Beaches with renowned West Palm Beach robotic surgeons, Dr. Daniel R. Higgins and Dr. Itzhak Shasha, opening the area's first TGH Imaging radiology location, a PET/CT imaging center. The TGH Cancer Institute also recently partnered with West Palm Beach-based physicians – thoracic surgical oncologist, Dr. Robert Scoma, and Dr. Jason Hechtman, a breast cancer surgeon.
