Announcement: Coronavirus testing does not take place at Synergy Radiology imaging sitesSynergy Radiology – Norwest Medical Imaging, would like to confirm that NO testing for Coronavirus has been performed or will be performed in our premises as this is not an Imaging test, but rather a Pathology test. As reported by 2GB and other online sources, testing was done last week by a pathology provider within the building. Following discussions, the pathology provider agreed to immediately discontinue Coronavirus testing services and further all areas have been disinfected and cleaned to Department of Health standards. Furthermore, the pathology provider has assured us ALL patients tested in the building that day have tested negative. Despite this, further precautions were taken that afternoon both by ourselves and the building Strata manager. Hospital-grade disinfection and cleaning was performed to all common areas as per Department of Health Standards to ensure no risks to our staff, patients and visitors.

Synergy continues to monitor and follow the guidelines set by the Department of Health to maintain a safe work environment for our staff, as well as continue to provide a safe facility for all our patients.
