Feature Client-U.S. MRI

Our featured tenant this month is U.S. MRI, now open at Valley Grove in Pleasant Grove, Utah.  Joining their South Ogden and South Jordan locations, the new office enables patients from the southern most reaches of the state to have easy access to state-of-the-art healthcare services.


U.S. M R I

The Pleasant Grove facility features U.S. MRI’s second Open MRI system, greatly expanding MRI options for patients in Utah County. With an unobstructed viewing angle and the industry’s most accommodating patient table, no other MRI system enables you to capture and retain as broad of a patient demographic as the Open MRI design.  Even the most challenged patients can be accommodated with confidence, without compromising on safety, performance, or efficiency. This might include large athletes or patients uncomfortable with the tube experience.  A parent may even accompany children undergoing an MRI on the table.

With large hospitals charging as much as $3,000+ per imaging session, U.S. MRI’s in, specialized facilities offer real cost-containment at just $500. This is real healthcare cost containment for patients like Jeri Beeston.

“The day before I had an MRI scheduled at an in-network imaging center for my insurance company, I happened to talk to a friend who told me about U.S. MRI in Pleasant Grove.  The quote for going to the imaging center was $1337 so I was very happy to check out U.S. MRI.  Sure enough, I could go in the next day and get the procedure done for $499.  I canceled my other appointment and called my doctor’s office to order it through U.S. MRI.

“The next morning, before my appointment, I called their finance department and a helpful person named Daya suggested checking the cost with my insurance.  She did and said it would be $420 with my insurance as long as it was pre-approved.  She said she would call them and work on it for me.  Within forty-five minutes she called me back to say it was all arranged.  I couldn’t believe it!  I was able to get my MRI, save $900, and it was all done in less than 24 hours.  I would recommend U.S. MRI to anyone who wants to save money and time.  It all worked out wonderfully. “


St. John Properties is so pleased to host tenants in a wide variety of businesses including healthcare.
