GWU Acquires GCM Washington, DC Location
Doctors Groover Christie & Merritt Radiology has faithfully served the Washington, DC downtown community for over 40 years. After careful consideration, GCM has decided to accept an offer from George Washington University Hospital (GW) to purchase our location at 1145 19th Street effective January 2016.
We regret any inconvenience this may cause for our referring physicians and patients. Please know that our other locations will provide the same high quality service that you have come to rely on.
The office under GW Hospital will offer the following services: CT, Mammography, MRI, Fluoroscopy and Ultrasound. Should you choose to stay with the location now, GW Hospital, please call their scheduling office for an appointment on (202) 715-4907.
As part of this sale, and as permitted by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA"), GCM Radiology's patient records associated with this facility will be transferred to GW. This includes digital films stored electronically by GCM Radiology and hard-copy films. The GCM location in Bethesda will also accommodate your request to the extent possible, if you would like to obtain copies of your digital images. To request a CD of your images for pick up from GCM, please call (301) 897-5656 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We thank you for entrusting GCM Radiology in providing imaging needs for your patients. We have enjoyed serving you and hope to continue to do so at our other locations. It is our desire to do everything in our power to make this transition as seamless as possible and welcome any questions you may have in this regard.
We are grateful to our loyal patients who made us the successful radiology company we are today and we look forward to moving ahead with you in 2016.
