New facility brings diagnostic imaging to high-deductible Indiana residents

Hancock Health, in Hancock County, Indiana, plans to build a 20,000-square-foot low-cost diagnostic imaging center for residents unable to afford imaging prices at the institution, according to the Greenfield Daily Reporter.

The building, set to open in 2019, is geared toward working adults with high deductibles who have been seeking alternative imaging services in nearby counties and at free-standing facilities, said Rob Matt, chief strategy and innovation officer of Hancock Health.

Patients are increasingly seeking alternative imaging options, bypassing the often-costly choices hospitals provide.

For residents such as April Fisher, Greenfield, Indiana’s town manager, the facility will be a welcome sight.

“We don’t have a lot of health services located in Cumberland or immediately outside,” she said in the story. “I applaud their efforts and commitment to getting involved with the western part of the county.”
