OrthoVirginia will acquire magnetic resonance imaging technology at its Henrico Parham location, one of its busiest offices of the 11 sites it has in central Virginia. Up to this point, OrthoVirginia performed MRI procedures on its single mobile unit at its Johnston-Willis and Farmville locations. The practice has been referring out to other MRI service providers two-thirds of its patients who require an MRI scan. OrthoVirginia received approval for its Certificate of Public Need application with the Virginia Department of Health. The new MRI facility is expected to cost $2.2 million. It should be fully operational by early 2016.
Martin's Food Markets today announced that it will close its Gayton Crossing store at 9782 Gayton Road on or before Oct. 26.
The announcement perhaps signals a victory of sorts for Kroger, which also operates a store at Gayton Crossing. The two stores sit almost back to back in the center.
The Martin's store was not meeting the company's sales goals, Giant/Martin's President Rick Herring said in a press release.
“This difficult decision comes out of our ongoing and continual assessment of our stores,” Herring said. "Our Gayton Crossing location
has not achieved performance goals after several years of operation. We thank and deeply appreciate the dedicated service of our associates at the Gayton Crossing store.”
