The Diagnostic Imaging Department is staffed 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. After regular working hours, the Diagnostic Imaging Department is staffed by “on call” personnel for emergencies only.

All outpatient procedures are completed by appointment only. Please have your physician complete SHH’s Diagnostic Imaging Requisition and fax it to 519-235-0018 . For any results or follow up, you will be directed to the same doctor who ordered the tests, unless otherwise noted on the requisition.
