Alegent Health Northwest Imaging

Northwest Imaging is a joint venture between Radiology Consultants and Alegent Health.

Our History

Radiology Consultants, P.C., Nebraska's first radiology practice, began in 1931 with the professional association of Drs. D. Arnold Dowell and James F. Kelly, Sr.  The practice grew, primarily through its affiliation with Creighton University, St. Joseph Hospital and St. Catherine's Hospital, which later became Archbishop Bergan Mercy Hospital.  As other physicians joined the practice, a professional partnership was established.  In August, 1969, the partnership became incorporated, providing the professional radiology services at St. Joseph Hospital and Bergan Mercy Hospital.  In 1986, the group refiled with the State of Nebraska as a Professional Corporation.

In the Fall of 1985, the group began construction on an independent diagnostic imaging facility, which opened in March of 1986 as the only free-standing fully equipped office of its kind in the State of Nebraska.  In August 2007, the group merged with Midwest Medical Imaging to become Radiology Consultants of the Midwest, P.C.  

Currently, there are twenty four board certified radiologists in the group and one board certified nuclear physician.  Diversification and sub-specialization has been the goal of the group for the past several years, and all subspecialty areas are currently staffed.  As a result of the subspecialization, the group is viewed as the premier radiology group within the CHI System, providing professional radiology services at four system hospitals, two free standing diagnostic offices, and several primary care offices.
