CHI Memorial CT Scan

CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia has on-site imaging available, including CT Scan (pictured), X-ray, ultrasound and echocardiography.

Steven Henry, chairman of the Catoosa County Board of Commissioners, says CHI Memorial has worked with the county in a way most people don’t think about: the county has an agreement with CHI Memorial Hospital Georgia to use the hospital’s morgue.

“We don’t need it a lot,” says Henry, “but sometimes, in the case of a crime or in some other situation, we do need it. After Hutcheson (Medical Center) closed, we were having to work with different funeral homes for morgue needs.”

♦ Operations in 18 states
