Pershing Health System may be a small, regional care facility, but its Radiology Department offers some of the most state-of-the-art equipment available for health maintenance and diagnosis.
Under the direction of Daniel Bartlett, Director of Radiology, patients at Pershing Health System have access to the same radiology equipment as large urban hospitals. PHS’s nine radiologists are board certified in pediatrics, neurology, musculoskeletal, and breast imaging. Patients at PHS get the same readings that they would get at a large hospital such as Liberty Hospital in Liberty, Missouri. This not only allows for the highest quality imaging available, but fast turnaround times for patients to get their results – often the same day.
