Lumina Imaging, created by The MetroHealth System in Cleveland as a network of consumer-centric imaging systems, is scaling its operating model and brand to more parts of Ohio and across the country through the installation of new Siemens Healthineers MR and CT scanners.
Lumina charges flat fees of $350 to $400 and $700 to $750, respectively, for CT and MR exams.
Via a long-term strategic Value Partnership, Siemens Healthineers will become the exclusive provider of up-to-date MR and CT systems at all future Lumina sites, allowing Lumina to equip corporate-owned and franchise sites with its operating model and brand for health systems looking to provide new options for outpatient imaging in their markets.
For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.
The organization, which is in-network with major insurers, including Aetna, Anthem, Cigna, Medical Mutual, and UnitedHealthcare, has locations in Mentor, Medina, and Solon, and is planning to open a fourth in Westlake in May 2023.
Lumina did not respond to HCB News for comment.
