Glendale, WI – EM
Columbia St. Mary’s acquired the River Woods property in December 2004.

The building is conveniently located between Columbia St. Mary’s Columbia and Milwaukee campuses on Milwaukee’s east side and the Ozaukee Campus in Mequon. Designed around the needs of patients, the center offers outpatient services for gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy, medical imaging, ambulatory surgery, and urgent care.
River Woods services include:
- Six suites for day surgery (ophthalmology, urology, otolaryngology, plastic, and general surgery cases).
- Four rooms for GI endoscopy services.
- 23 peri-operative and peri-procedural patient rooms to support these services.
- Imaging Center offering CT, open MRI, ultrasound, general radiology services, and women’s imaging utilizing full-field digital mammography.
Urgent Care services The state-of-the-art Imaging Center at River Woods includes general radiology services, CT, ultrasound, and women’s imaging utilizing full-field digital mammography. In addition, patients who need an MRI scan will benefit from the center’s new open MRI—one of only six Panorama 1.0T MRIs to be installed in the United States. With its 360° viewing angle and wide aperture, patients can see their complete surroundings during the MRI test, eliminating the claustrophobic effects of traditional (closed) MRIs. Same-day imaging requests will be fulfilled whenever possible.
The Imaging Center also features a Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) that allows images such as X-rays and scans to be stored electronically and viewed on video screens. This enables doctors and other health professionals to access the information and compare it with previous images at the touch of a button. PACS technology allows for a near filmless process, with all the flexibility of digital systems. It also removes all the costs associated with hard film and releases valuable space currently used for storage. PACS will support clinicians in performing their roles and will contribute to more efficient and advanced service.
