Client Spotlight: Medical Imaging Consultants
7/12/12 - "MammoVan" provides mobile digital mammography to rural hospitals, corporations, clinics, & supermarkets
Medical Imaging Consultants (MIC) is an outpatient medical imaging center, locally owned and operated in LaVista, Nebraska.
In 2009, MIC decided to go mobile and commissioned La Boit to build their "MammoVan." The 28ft long coach provides mobile digital mammography to rural hospitals, corporations, clinics and supermarkets. They also take the coach to healthfairs and other community-oriented events to help promote the service to potential customers.
The MammoVan allows MIC to reach a customer demographic that they would otherwise miss. To demonstrate this, we thought we'd let their customers speak for them:
“I think it’s a great program. What a convenience! No need to take time off to schedule an appointment, then spend a lot of time waiting in a reception area. Once inside the mobile site, I forgot I was inside a truck/van, and felt as if I was in a “normal” facility. And, actually, I felt more comfortable and personal than past experiences in a “normal” facility. I hope OWH continues to offer this as an option for mammography screening—if so, I’ll definitely be back!”
“I wasn’t sure what to expect from a van in the middle of our parking lot, but it was surprisingly comfortable, very private, and the nurse puts you right at ease.”
“Loved, loved, loved having this clinic onsite! The entire procedure took 10 minutes and I didn’t have to miss work!”
“Being high risk, I should have them done every year but never have. Now I don’t have an excuse.
Vickie Hagen, Vice President and General Manager of Omaha Creative Group, said the onsite clinic was “very similar to having a mammogram in a doctor’s office, but without the wait!” She said, “The nurse was very calming and professional. I think this is one of the best things we have ever done for our employees!”
For medical imaging companies, a mobile mammography vehicle is a great way to expand your business and reach more customers. Contact La Boit today and let us show you how.
