OKLAHOMA CITY—Edmond-based Breast Imaging of Oklahoma opened its doors Friday with a new name after joining with the state’s largest and most comprehensive hospital.

OU Medical Center Breast Imaging of Oklahoma (BIO) will operate as an outpatient department of OU Medical Center and its doctors will be part of OU Physicians, the state's largest physicians group. BIO’s five physician radiologists, nearly 30 staff members and location at 2601 Kelley Pointe Parkway will remain the same.

The merger will allow BIO to join and share OU Medicine’s commitments to advanced technology, research, clinical trials, diagnosis and treatment. The Stephenson Cancer Center at OU Medicine leads the region in personalized cancer care.

 “We are excited to welcome Breast Imaging of Oklahoma into the OU Medicine family. The expertise and compassionate care provided by the radiologists and staff will be an excellent fit for our patient-centered care,” said Melissa Fawcett, assistant vice president of breast imaging for OU Medical System.

BIO is a Center of Excellence as determined by the American College of Radiology, offering digital screening and diagnostic mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound and bone density screening. It has the largest high-risk imaging program in the state to screen women at high risk for breast cancer.

The company first opened its doors in 2003, and was co-founded by Drs. Debra Mitchell and Kelly McDonough. Drs. Ashley Magness, Tina Dickerson and Lori Fredrick all joined as the practice grew.

 “We are thankful for our loyal and committed patients,” said Mitchell.

“We will continue to deliver the personalized and caring approach to care our loyal patients have come to trust, while at the same time expanding our resources and access to research and technology,” McDonough said.
