Centralized Outpatient Scheduling

With just one phone call, physician office staffs can schedule patients for outpatient diagnostic testing at Saint Vincent. By calling 814-866-4850 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, you can schedule outpatient tests involving radiology, nuclear medicine, cardiotechnical services, respiratory care and neurodiagnostics. A Saint Vincent associate will schedule each patient's procedures using a computer program that cross-references all five of the above diagnostic areas and allows the associate to schedule each test as close in time as possible, simplifying an outpatient's testing schedule. Outpatient procedures that can be scheduled include:

Nuclear medicine, MRI, CT, sonography, fluoro procedures (e.g., barium enemas) and specials (e.g., arthrograms and myelograms)
*Imaging Center at Yorktown - technology, service and convenience
