ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST PARISH – St. John Parish President Natalie Robottom, Administrative Staff, Council Members Jaclyn Hotard, Cheryl Millet, Marvin Perrilloux, Larry Snyder, and Lennix Madere joined owners Casey Accardo, Brent Remondet, Steward Ancelot and Dr. Robert Dale for the grand opening of River Bend Imaging, LLC, located at 490 Belle Terre Blvd in LaPlace in a newly renovated building. Also on hand for the ceremony were family and friends, members of the River Region Chamber of Commerce, Sheriff Mike Tregre and District Attorney Bridget Dinvaut. “The support from local officials and our community was encouraging. Being located in St. John the Baptist Parish provides a convenience to residents,” said owner Brent Remondet. “Our mission ‘Your image is important to us’ says it all,” he added.
River Bend Imaging is the only free-standing, independent Imaging Center offering MRIs and bone density scans in the tri-parish area. Staff members provide high quality MRI scans in a copper lined room using the latest technology and superior imaging systems. The center is locally owned and operated and presents a more cost-effective method for imaging services. “Riverbend Imaging in LaPlace is a great addition to serving the medical and imaging needs of our residents. They offer state of the art MRI and bone density tests in a professional, friendly environment. We wish them much success and our doors are open to assist them in any way,” said Council Member At Large Division B Jaclyn Hotard. District VII Council Member Cheryl Millet added, “I am excited that we now have an imaging center in St. John.”
River Bend Imaging is also working to offer CAT scans, Mammograms and Ultra Sounds in the near future. The St. John Parish Economic Development Department serves as a liaison for new businesses and will remain in communication with staff members moving forward. “Every day we work to drive investment in our parish and keep our citizens’ tax dollars here,” said Laverne Saulny with the Economic Development Office. “This is one more example of how small businesses are expanding in our parish and bringing new jobs and services. We greatly appreciate River Bend for choosing St. John as the home to do business and we are looking forward to their commitment to the growth of our community.”
River Bend Imaging is open Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is based on referrals.
