The Imaging Institute

Warwick, Cranston, North Providence, RI


New Construction
3 locations


Vision 3 Architects has designed multiple diagnostic imaging centers for The Imaging Institute. Two of the buildings were new, free-standing facilities, and all contained the latest MRI, CT, x-ray, ultrasound, mammography, and bone density imaging equipment. Diagnostic imaging presents many challenges to architects and designers. Among the most critical to a successful facility are:

• Meeting the demanding technical requirements of the equipment.
• Creating a warm, inviting, and hospitable patient experience.
• Flexibility to accommodate future growth and changes in technology.

Vision 3 assisted The Imaging Institute with the evaluation of potential sites and provided full architectural, engineering, and interior design services for all three locations.


“Vision 3 Architects brings a level of knowledge and experience in medical office design and most importantly for us, the unique aspects of building an MRI room. Thus selecting Vision 3 provides a special level of comfort. Their experience and expertise allows us greater flexibility in selecting a contractor knowing that Vision 3 will direct the project. Vision 3 also brings some unique design ideas to the basic office concept that we have been very pleased with. The staff at Vision 3 has proven very competent and easy to communicate with. They have always been very responsive and when construction problems arise they have always either resolved the problem in coordination with the contractor or presented several alternatives for consideration. In summary, after working with Vision 3 on a number of projects over the years, I’m not sure I would be comfortable using anyone else.”
