Allina's Regina Hospital opens $6.4 million Medical Imaging department

[Hastings Star Gazette, April 13, 2017] Regina Hospital has opened its newly remodeled Medical Imaging Department, a $6.4 million project. The complete remodel of the unit has included the upgrade or replacement of three major diagnostic tools including the magnetic resonance imaging, computerized tomography and radiographic/fluoroscopy equipment.

John Tonsager, director of clinical and support services at Regina Hospital, said that efficiency is something they are gaining with the remodeled department.

"I think our effort at the onset was an improved patient experience, but also to bring the latest technologies to our community without having to go elsewhere for both services, so we feel that the quality and the needs can be met at a local level," Tonsager said.
