Plainview MRI is part of Plainview Hospital, which is part of the North
Shore University Hospital system. With more than a 15 hospitals, NSUH
is the leading healthcare system on Long Island and is very highly
respected throughout the northeast.
Plainview Hospital did not have an MRI on site and needed to send
patients to various other hospitals in their system. Consequently, they
were losing business to competitors and to the other hospitals in their
NSUH network. Naturally, they wanted something that would solve that
problem, as well as conforming to the style of their main building,
being available in a very short period of time and maintaining their
patient friendly reputation.
The Whitley Solution
Whitley, in conjunction with Axis Modular Systems Director John
Buongiorno, offered a reputation for many successful MRI additions, and
we able to promise a building within Plainview’s short five-month
time frame. Axis was also able to provide Plainview with a design that
met their exacting technical needs and with a look that complimented
their existing facility. The design featured a number of elements that
promoted patient comfort, as well. The two module, 1,900 square foot
facility was completed in five months. While the buildings were
constructed in Indiana, the MR was lowered through an engineered roof
slot and connected on site. The building operates to “rave
reviews” and has solved all of Plainview’s problems.
