DKH to Consolidate Diagnostic Imaging Services in Danielson to Plainfield and Putnam

June 24, 2020

All Other Services at Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Danielson Remain Unchanged

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) has announced that it will consolidate its diagnostic imaging services currently located at its Healthcare Center in Danielson to its other locations offering those services at both the Day Kimball Healthcare Center in Plainfield, and Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam.

The last day of operation for diagnostic imaging services in Danielson is Tuesday, June 30, 2020. Beginning Wednesday, July 1, the diagnostic imaging site in Plainfield will resume to normal business hours: Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and every other Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The healthcare system temporarily suspended diagnostic imaging services at the Plainfield Healthcare Center in April in response to significant drops in patient volume resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

“As we safely and carefully resume services that have been delayed due to COVID-19, we have been strategically examining our operations across our system,” said Joseph Adiletta, DKH interim president. “We recognized an opportunity to improve productivity and efficiency by combining our three imaging services locations to two sites,” he explained.

“Day Kimball’s diagnostic imaging sites at our Plainfield and Putnam locations ensure we’re providing access to diagnostic care for patients across our entire service area,” Adiletta continued. “And, both of these sites offer the latest in cutting-edge technology, including state-of-the-art 3-D technology for mammograms.”

Adiletta explained that the change in locations offering diagnostic imaging services does not result in any eliminations of staffing.

“Only a small handful of employees have been impacted by the consolidation. Those few have either been reassigned to one of our other diagnostic imaging locations, or they have been extended an offer to apply for open diagnostic imaging positions at the main hospital campus,” Adiletta said.

Patients can also access all diagnostic imaging services, including x-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds, nuclear medicine studies, MRI, PET scans, and mammography, at Day Kimball Hospital located at 320 Pomfret Street in Putnam. For service hours of operation, click here.
