Auckland Radiology Group: A Long History with Ponsonby

Auckland Radiology Group (ARG) has been part of the Ponsonby landscape for 30 years and this year they showed a renewed commitment to the community when they relocated to the newly refurbished One Jervois Building, on the corner of Ponsonby Road and Jervois Road.

“There are many reasons why it’s a great place to have a presence,” says Dr Kate O’Connor, ARG Radiologist and Board Director. Our proximity to the city is such that we often see patients from Waiheke or that live in the CBD. People from the North Shore also don’t mind just popping over the bridge for an appointment - especially now we can offer even better parking options at our new location.”

Founded in 1936, ARG was the first clinic of its kind in Auckland. Since that first door opened, it has expanded to 15 clinics across North, South, East and West Auckland, ensuring people have access to a world-class imaging service wherever they live in the city.

The 282 Ponsonby Road clinic opened in 1990 and has been a busy and much-loved radiology provider since then. Although there have been recent closures of imaging at both White Cross and Ponsonby Ultrasound, there was no question of ARG not staying in the area.

The new location, on Level 1 at One Jervois, provides much needed extra space in a beautiful new environment. They now have extra capacity with a third ultrasound room and large x-ray room, as well as space for ARG radiologists and specialist booking administrators.

“We get to care for patients of all ages - from in the womb and beyond!” says O’Connor. “When Covid restrictions allow, we do a lot of imaging to meet immigration requirements for new and aspiring New Zealanders. Monday is always a busy day at the branch; locals, being active Kiwis, have their fair share of ‘weekend warrior’ thrills and spills. Our staff maintain excellent relationships with our local and loyal referrers and really do their best to find what works for all patients.”

“We are committed to offering the highest quality and most comprehensive radiology services using the latest equipment. Our team looks forward to providing new and existing patients a friendly caring experience, and we warmly invite you to visit us,” adds Dr Stephen Merrilees, ARG’s Medical Director.
