EGG HARBOR TOWNHIP — A new 14,847-square-foot Atlantic Medical Imaging center is expected to open in January.

“We are 90 percent complete. We’re almost there, and the facility is going to be even better than we were expecting,” said Dr. David Levi, president and CEO of Atlantic Medical Imaging. “We are going to be offering all of the state-of-the-art imaging services that we have offered to Atlantic County, except in a brand new state-of-the-art center, and we couldn’t be more excited about how it’s turning out.”

The new facility is at 6529 Black Horse Pike at the intersection with Spruce Avenue.

“We are having inspections as we speak,” Levi said.

Everything is pretty much done on the inside, and it is in the process of receiving final approvals from the state and the township, Levi said.

The general contractor was O.A. Peterson Construction Co. Inc. of Montclair, Essex County, which specializes in health care construction, but the subcontractors were based in South Jersey, Levi said.

The new location will be a full-service imaging center, featuring CT, MRI, X-ray and ultrasound services. The Women’s Imaging Center will include 3D mammography, DEXA, ultrasound and minimally invasive breast biopsies.

The new location was selected based on where the Atlantic Medical Imaging patients lived and where they could be best served, Levi said.

The center is between the now-closed Festival Mall location in Mays Landing and the Hingston Avenue location in Egg Harbor Township, Levi said. The Hingston Avenue center will close once the new site is fully operational, Levi said.

“Our main centers will be Somers Point, Galloway Township and the new one, and they are all full-service imaging centers,” Levi said.

Atlantic Medical Imaging, which is headquartered in Pomona, also plans to open a new center early next year in the new medical complex in the AtlantiCare Health Park, Manahawkin Campus, according to AtlantiCare.
