IH opens new X-ray, bone-density testing clinic in North Kamloops

New imaging clinic opens

Interior Health has opened an expanded and upgraded medical imaging clinic in North Kamloops.

The Northills Centre Medical Imaging Clinic has opened its doors at 42-700 Tranquille Rd., replacing the former North Shore Radiology Clinic on nearby Fortune Drive.

“The new Northills Centre Medical Imaging Clinic will add capacity for over 8,000 X-rays and 3,000 bone density exams per year,” B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix said in a news release.

“I am excited that residents in the Kamloops region will have access to improved medical imaging services closer to home.”

The clinic is home to an upgraded $98,000 bone-density unit, which was paid for by a donor to the RIH Foundation, as well as a brand new X-ray machine, which replaces a model that was nearly 20 years old. In all, the equipment and renovations in the new clinic cost $917,000.

The clinic is open 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Bone density testing is by appointment only. X-rays are by appointment until 12:30 p.m., with drop-ins available from 1 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.

Appointments can be booked by calling 250-314-2420.
