AFTER 30 years as premier health care providers in Shepparton, The Goulburn Valley Imaging Group (GVIG) has joined forces with Focus Radiology, directly benefiting patients old and new.

Goulburn Valley Imaging Group CEO, Stavros Dodos said, “This merger means the services we are able to offer in all areas have been increased and improved. With our combination of resources including 10 radiologists and 110 plus technical and support staff, there is less waiting time, more specialised care and better diagnostics.”

“As the only providers of mammography in the region and with three female specialists, together GVIG and Focus Radiology have all of the latest technology, and crucially, a talented group of in-house specialists at our finger-tips.”

Previous medical records now shared between the service centres are helping to make diagnosis faster and more precise.

Stavros said, “The merger has allowed our team of specialists to now work more closely within their sub specialities. Within a 2km radius in Shepparton we have three CT machines, two Nuclear Medicine machines, a MRI unit, the only mammography service and numerous x-ray and ultrasound machines. With expert services and fast access to patient results and images, GVIG can meet your needs.”
