Captive Radiology Department Design Expertise Guides Clients' Projects to Successful Completion

CANTON, OH--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - Asking the right questions is critical in directing decisions about radiology department design projects so that they result in successful and profitable areas of operation.

The experts at Captive Radiology know all of the questions to ask and answer for hospitals, clinics, surgical centers and physician practices that are ready to undertake a radiology department design project to upgrade their medical imaging services. They partner with healthcare organizations to determine the best technology, installation and staffing for radiology operations, and typically work with healthcare clients from the very beginning of new radiology department design projects and equipment upgrades.

"Our job is to assess what our healthcare client needs and what sort of budget they should assign for the best possible outcome of their selection and installation of new medical imaging equipment, including large-scale radiology department design projects," said Paul Yastrab, Captive Radiology's director of operations and project management. "We do this by asking a lot of questions, taking nothing for granted, so that the entire picture is considered and the best site, design, equipment and contractors are determined."

Yastrab said Captive Radiology often is called in on a project that the client has projected will cost considerably more than what actually turns out to be the case. "We help hospitals, surgery centers and physician practices minimize their risk of over-specifying or over-building, while at the same time making sure they avoid costly mistakes," he said. "We have succeeded many times in lowering radiology department design project costs, sometimes reducing them to half of what had been projected."

Captive Radiology's professionals are experienced in all aspects of medical imaging service equipment upgrades and installations, including equipment technology, building architecture, shielding, patient flow, special lighting, staffing and other details. The company has a long history of working successfully with clients' contractors to keep projects on schedule, on budget and completed to each client's complete satisfaction.
