Lumina Imaging and Siemens Healthineers Form Strategic Partnership to Expand Outpatient Imaging


Lumina Imaging, a network of consumer-centric imaging centers, and Siemens Healthineers, a global leader in medical technology, have formed a long-term strategic Value Partnership1 that will help scale Lumina’s innovative model across the country.

The MetroHealth System in Cleveland, Ohio, created Lumina to answer this simple question: Why are MRI and CT scans so expensive and difficult to schedule? Lumina offers hospital-quality imaging services with an exceptional consumer experience at a fraction of the cost of those offered in hospital settings.

This Value Partnership will provide the technology backbone that will allow Lumina to scale its operating model and brand through both corporate-owned sites and franchise sites with health systems throughout Ohio and beyond looking to offer new options for outpatient imaging in their markets.

“We know what we have created in Lumina is special. It provides value to the patient, the referring provider and the payor. Now with this partnership we can rapidly scale this model,” said Julie Jacono, MetroHealth’s Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy & Innovation Officer. “As a health system, we knew that the best way to transform care is through partnerships with trusted health systems. The franchise model enables health systems, like MetroHealth, to have a turn-key solution for retail imaging in their markets, backed by Siemens Healthineers, which is synonymous with quality throughout the world.”

Under the agreement, Siemens Healthineers will be the exclusive provider of MRI and CT equipment in all future Lumina sites, deploying the latest technology and service to support Lumina’s patient-focused mission. This strategic partnership represents a shared vision for meeting the cost and workforce pressures of the future by radically innovating through technology and best-in-class operations.

“Our relationship with Lumina is an important step in providing all patients with equitable access to care. By shifting routine imaging services to community outpatient settings, we can provide more patients with more convenient access to the high-quality, cost-effective care they need to live longer, healthier lives, no matter where they are.” said David Pacitti, President of Siemens Medical Solutions USA, Inc. and Head of the Americas, Siemens Healthineers.

Lumina currently operates Ohio locations in Mentor, Medina and Solon. A fourth location in Westlake is opening in May 2023.
