ANTHC opens new Outpatient Imaging Center at University Lake Medical Center building

November 8, 2022

We are excited to announce the opening of our new ANMC Outpatient Imaging Center, located at the University Lake Medical Center (ULMC) at 3801 University Lake Drive, Suite 102. This is the same building where the ENT, Ophthalmology and Audiology Clinics, and the Ambulatory Surgery Center are also located. 

The new Outpatient Imaging Center is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art imaging equipment and technology, including two MRI machines, a 3 Tesla and a 1.5 Tesla; a dual energy CT machine; and X-ray, fluoroscopy and ultrasound rooms. This new MRI technology at the Outpatient Imaging Center provides for improved MRI and CT scan times, with the images being clearer and more complete. In addition, the patient waiting area is comfortably furnished and has Alaska wildlife-themed window décor.

“We are very excited to open this new space to our patients,” said John Dolbinski, Director of Imaging Services at ANTHC. “By bringing our imaging outpatients over for these services, we can provide a quicker visit, and an overall goal of focusing on patient experiences.” 

By bringing our imaging outpatients over to this location, it provides for a better patient experience, as patients won’t have long wait times or potentially be bumped for emergency and trauma patients, which can happen often at the ANMC hospital, a Level II Adult and Pediatric Trauma Center. 

The new ANMC Outpatient Imaging Center was funded in partnership with CIRI and Southcentral Foundation (SCF). The COVID-19 pandemic quickly increased the demand for emergency and inpatient hospital services. To accommodate this increase in patient care, it made sense to move outpatient clinics from the main ANMC hospital to allow for the expansion of emergency and inpatient hospital services for our people.

Both CIRI and SCF stepped in to ensure that the construction and imaging equipment at the new ANMC Outpatient Imaging Center were the highest quality and used the latest technology for the people we serve. ANTHC is incredibly grateful for this strong partnership.

If you have an imaging appointment, please make sure you know which campus location your appointment is at. The phone number for the ANMC Outpatient Imaging Center is (907) 729-7522.
