Have you ever needed X-rays, but wished you could go to some place convenient and close to home—a place besides the hospital?

Here’s a little-known secret about SIH Imaging Services: While Memorial Hospital of Carbondale, Herrin Hospital and St. Joseph Memorial Hospital offer a more comprehensive set of Imaging Services, several routine services like X-rays and ultrasound do not require going to the hospital.

Our services can be found at the Center for Medical Arts, Herrin Logan Primary Care, West Frankfort Logan Primary Care, West Frankfort Miners Memorial Clinic and Benton Franklin Medical Arts.

X-ray studies are a “walk-in” service, where as CT scans, ultrasound and bone density must be scheduled in advance.

“We want to provide our southern Illinois community with accessible, convenient diagnostic imaging to make everyone’s life a little easier,” said Jon Lough, Director of Imaging Services.

Talk with your doctor to find a convenient location that offers the Imaging services that you need.
