Posted: 13 January 2012

The Holy Spirit Carlisle Center will open its imaging and lab services on Wednesday, January 18. This new center is located at 1211 Forge Road, Carlisle, near Westminster and York Roads.

“Holy Spirit has enjoyed serving patients in the Carlisle community for many years. More and more Carlisle area residents choose Holy Spirit Hospital and our outpatient services,” says Rick LaVanture, senior vice president, Strategic Planning and Business Development. “This center will allow us to provide additional care and services in a more convenient and integrated setting.”

Imaging services will include MRI, CT, 3D and 4D ultrasound, full body bone densitometry, and digital X-ray. Digital mammography, with computer-aided detection, services will be offered beginning in late May. Imaging services will be offered Monday through Thursday from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., and on Fridays from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m. To schedule an appointment for imaging services, please call 972-4900.

Complete specimen draws and laboratory collection services will be available at the Holy Spirit Carlisle Center. The lab will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. No appointment is needed for most lab tests, and early morning collection times are available.

Patients who need to have an EKG (a simple, painless test that records the heart’s electrical activity) done as part of their routine care will be able to have them performed at the Holy Spirit Carlisle Center. To schedule an EKG, please call 763-2191.

In December, the Carlisle Family Health Center opened at this location. Babak Behta, MD, provides family medicine visits by appointment. Walk-in care is also available for patients who need same day medical care. If a patient has a primary care doctor, Carlisle Family Health Center will send a summary of medical care provided to the primary care doctor’s office and return the patient to their doctor for follow-up care. To make an appointment, please call 218-3920.

Physician specialty services will be offered at the Holy Spirit Carlisle Center in the future. For more information, call 717-763-CARE (2273).
