Aug. 02--Edmond-based Breast Imaging of Oklahoma merged with OU Medical Center on Friday.
OU Medical Center Breast Imaging of Oklahoma (BIO), at 2601 Kelly Point Parkway, now will operate as an outpatient department of OU Medical Center.
"We are excited to welcome Breast Imaging of Oklahoma into the OU Medicine family. The expertise and compassionate care provided by the radiologists and staff will be an excellent fit for our patient-centered care," said Melissa Fawcett, assistant vice president of breast imaging for OU Medical System.
BIO offers digital screening and diagnostic mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound and bone density screening. Five physician radiologists practice at the center, which employs nearly 30.
The company first opened its doors in 2003, and was co-founded by radiologists Debra Mitchell and Kelly McDonough. Physicians Ashley Magness, Tina Dickerson and Lori Frederick all joined as the practice grew. All five now are in OU Physicians.
"We will continue to deliver the personalized and caring approach to care our loyal patients have come to trust, while at the same time expanding our resources and access to research and technology," McDonough said.
