Galichia Heart Hospital, which was acquired by the parent of Wesley Medical Center in 2012, has broken ground on a new addition that will house an MRI, according to a spokeswoman.

The total cost for the project is $2.2 million. The hospital expects to start treating patients with the machine by June 1.

The project architect is Spangenberg Phillips Tice, and the general contractor is Eby Martin Construction.

The MRI machine has a wide bore magnet, which means it has a larger opening than traditional machines for bariatric patients and those who are claustrophobic. It’s the same kind that was installed at Wesley last year.
