The Rio Grande Hospital Imaging Department is a highly technical department staffed with people who have a passion for patient care and service; high quality personnel that get accurate results. Our staff knows that helping understand what will take place during your test will assist you in remaining calm and relaxed during the procedure. This creates a positive experience for you and enables the Technologist performing your procedure to obtain the highest quality image and exam to help in your diagnosis and treatment.
At Rio Grande Hospital Radiology, the department includes 6 full time Radiologic Technologists, a Department Manager, a Receptionist, and a Diagnostic Radiologist – Dr. Jack Bufkin to interpret your images and exams 24 hours a day.
