Diagnostic imaging allows physicians to view the inside of your body to help confirm a diagnosis and determine the causes of an injury or illness. This service is also used to see how well your body is responding to a treatment for an illness or injury.
Our Diagnostic Imaging Department treats a wide range of medical conditions and assists in the diagnosis of many more.
Our talented team of ARRT-registered technologists and board-certified radiologists strive to provide the best patient experience throughout the entire treatment process.
Diagnostic imaging includes a variety of non-invasive methods to look inside your body. Our physicians will work with you to decide which imaging tests are best based on the body part they are evaluating and their symptoms.

Sheridan Hospital Rehab Services help patients resume regular life activities after injuries, surgeries and prolong illnesses. Our Rehab Services – Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy – offer wide spectrum of Inpatient and Outpatient services. We work with you to create a treatment plan that can help you experience less pain, move more freely and restore proper function. Continuing care is critical to us – that’s why our therapists create evaluation and periodic progress reports for your physician to use after their visit with us.
As members of the Sheridan Hospital health care team, our therapists work closely with physicians and nurses to ensure our patients return to their former level of function or become as independent as possible.
