Mobile MRI

Pooling Resources to Serve Our Communities

Since 2011, Nevada Rural Hospital Partners (NRHP) has been integral to bringing high quality, cost effective MRI service to rural communities across the state. In 2020, NRHP was awarded a grant by The William N. Pennington Foundation to purchase a state-of-the-art mobile MRI system that services four member hospitals:

  • Battle Mountain General Hospital – Battle Mountain, Nevada
  • Mt. Grant General Hospital – Hawthorne, Nevada
  • Pershing General Hospital – Lovelock, Nevada
  • South Lyon Medical Center – Yerington, Nevada

The new mobile MRI system is being built with patient comfort and safety in mind with reduced scan times up to 50% while preserving the image quality. It is expected to be deployed in July 2021.

NRHP facilitates a Mobile MRI Advisory group that meets regularly to discuss quality, review the scheduled routes, and to resolve any service issues.
