“We understand our patients have busy lives and may not be able to get the care they need when it is most convenient to them,” says Brian Leutner, executive director, UM Shore Medical Center at Dorchester and UM Shore Regional Health Oncology Services. “By extending the general hours (lab work, EKG, X-ray and mammograms) to 6 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, we are hoping to give those patients the opportunity to come in at the end of their day.”

Exceptions to the Monday – Thursday 6 p.m closing are as follows: Walk-in for MRI, 8 to 5:30 p.m; CT and PET scans and ultrasound exams, by appointment only, 8 to 4 p.m. MRI, CT and PET scans are conducted on Saturdays between 8 a.m and 12 p.m. but must be scheduled in advance.
