Keystone Radiology Partner with GE Healthcare to Advance Diagnostic Services at MooiMed Hospital

GE Healthcare has partnered with Keystone Radiology at MooiMed Hospital, to provide advanced diagnostic solutions for its Medical and Surgical patients, as well as the Sports and Orthopaedic Institute. The advanced technology which includes GE Healthcare’s Revolution ACT, Signa Explorer MR and OEC One C-arm will aid their team in accurately diagnosing injuries and enhance the performance of athletes.

Keystone Medical has a focus on dedicated specialist diagnostic services delivering expert, efficient and reproducible quality to the best clinicians

Keystone has a Nationwide footprint of in and out-of-hospital Diagnostic Imaging Centres building on a strong history of exemplary patient care and fast Radiological reporting. Keystone has always partnered with the best clinicians in our country, thus we decided to make Mooimed Hospital our flagship diagnostic facility, delivering dedicated world-class imaging. This will be made possible through our partnership with the renowned clinicians of Mooimed Hospital and GE Healthcare, who are leaders in innovative diagnostic solutions.”-said Dr Pieter Henning, Clinical Head of Keystone Radiology.

The MRI will be focused on delivering detailed imaging with highly specialised dedicated reporting tailored according to the needs of the referring clinicians. The OEC One C-Arm will provide fast and accurate imaging in the theatres during Orthopaedic and Urological procedures, while the upgraded Revolution ACT CT scan will expand the hospital’s diagnostic capability by faster scanning times, higher resolutions and software. The CT is fully capable to deliver diagnostic accuracy for the expanding super-specialist range of Mooimed Hospital, such as pulmonology.

“As a leading provider of medical imaging solutions, we are delighted to be cooperating with Keystone Radiology to enable broader access to the latest imaging technologies.

This will enable the new diagnostic facility to deliver a more effective diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of patients.”-said Clyde Lewis, Chief Commercial Officer, GE Healthcare Africa.

Treatment at the Mooimed ranges from the more conservative rehabilitation to less invasive treatments as well as reconstructive surgery. All services are provided to both the elite athlete and the mature patient, to ensure a speedy recovery and return of patients to either the sports field or work environment and daily activities.

Our mission is to provide uniquely superior health care services and to create an environment with a superior patient wellness experience.

We are eagerly anticipating the first MRI scans done in house to address our patient’s specific individual needs. This will ensure a quick return to the activities our patients like most; whether it is qualifying for the Olympics, playing SuperRugby or walking around the block.”- said Mrs SC van Reenen, Hospital Manager at MooiMed Hospital. 

According to Mordor Intelligence, the burden of chronic diseases has been increasing steadily in South Africa, leading to technological advancements in diagnostic imaging. With the new diagnostic equipment at Mooimed, patients will not need to be referred to Gauteng to obtain comparable diagnostic services.  This will greatly enhance radiological services in Potchefstroom and the North West Province at large.
