Shields MRI – Portsmouth

New Hampshire Welcomes Shields’ Quality and Price for MRI.

For the first time, Shields Health Care Group (Shields), the leading MRI provider in Massachusetts, will bring their high-value MRI services into New Hampshire. February 4 marks the opening of Shields MRI – Portsmouth, in partnership with Atlantic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine (AOSM), a leading orthopedics group currently operating in Portsmouth.

Shields decision to bring MRI services to New Hampshire was an easy one for the 30-center, family-run company. The Portsmouth N.H. area is home to exceptionally high prices in healthcare, particularly in imaging, as well as a growing number of residents on high-deductible healthcare plans. The demand for affordable, high-quality imaging services is high and Shields MRI – Portsmouth will provide a new solution for these patients.

“Our strategy for growing the Shields network is centered on value and partnerships”, says Shields President, Tom Shields. “Shields is known for providing quality health care at a price that is affordable, and we partner with leading providers that share our vision. We’re excited to be partnering with AOSM to provide the Portsmouth community with a new value of MRI that was previously unavailable.”

Shields MRI – Portsmouth will feature a 1.5T MRI, the gold standard machine in imaging. This magnet strength provides images with a clarity that lower level machines cannot achieve, providing greater accuracy for a more definitive diagnosis. This, combined with Shields low pricing, make the new MRI center the best value for patients and physicians.

The new Portsmouth center is easily accessible, located just five minutes off of 1-93 in AOSM’s building at 150 U.S. 1 Bypass. Shields MRI – Portsmouth will be open Tuesday, Thursday & Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
