|New sites open for outpatient imaging services|

Bridgeport Hospital patients now have access to a variety of imaging services at four new outpatient locations:
- 4699 Main Street, Bridgeport
- 425 Post Road, Fairfield
- 2909 Main Street, Stratford
- 2595 Main Street, Stratford
These services, acquired by the hospital from Russo Radiology (Robert D. Russo, MD and Associates Radiology), include X-ray, mammography, ultrasound and bone density exams. The Bridgeport outpatient office also provides CT scans. MRIs are provided at a separate Stratford office, 2595 Main Street.
“By partnering with an experienced and established provider of radiology services and contracting with the Yale School of Medicine for professional services, Bridgeport Hospital will ensure that the level of quality and service set by Russo Radiology will be maintained and enhanced,” said William M. Jennings, Bridgeport Hospital president and CEO, and executive vice president, Yale New Haven Health System.
“Operating outpatient radiology services allows the hospital to maintain consistent standards of care in both inpatient and outpatient settings,” he added. Another benefit of the acquisition is that the new Bridgeport Hospital outpatient radiology sites implemented the state-of-the-art Epic electronic medical record system at the same time it was introduced at the hospital’s main campus in late September.
The new Epic system is in use throughout the Yale New Haven Health System. This helps enhance quality and safety, while providing convenient access to information for patients and healthcare providers.
Bridgeport Hospital Outpatient Radiology is opening a new office suite at 5520 Park Avenue in Trumbull at the end of 2013. Diagnostic imaging services will include X-ray, mammography and ultrasound.
