Sonography Services & Healthcare Consulting

Mission Statement

BB Imaging and Healthcare Consulting strives for excellence in patient care through ultrasound imaging and consulting services. We develop professional working relationships with fellow healthcare providers in order to provide compassionate and complete care to patients.


OUR STORY

Ben and I moved to Austin in 2003 and we immediately tried to close the proverbial “door” behind us, but the city wouldn’t let us. Ben was a skilled sonographer having trained at one of the busiest obstetrical departments in the country at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas. My background was in business and I was experienced in the non-profit world through the lens of a domestic violence agency. It was a formative role that helped me hone in on issues that affect women and their children. So when we created BB Imaging, the heart of our model came from wanting to improve the lives of women and their loved ones.

Our plan was to bring the best ultrasound experience and expert eyes to women who might not otherwise have access to this care due to geographic or economic limitations. We started BB Imaging, scanning for one physician in San Marcos, originally intending to stay on the outskirts of town. Ironically, business brought us into city center, and we grew in those early years largely by word of mouth.

Almost fifteen years later, we have been fortunate to have new partnerships that are bringing us back to providing care to those we first hoped to serve. Our services cover much of Central Texas including Harker Heights, New Braunfels, Bastrop and Fredericksburg and cities in between. We also cover portions of  Oklahoma in the Indian Health System and beyond.  This summer, we are finally achieving our goal of spreading this throughout the U.S. by opening services in Florida.  I still believe firmly that new models in healthcare, and creative approaches to bringing care to under-served communities is not just good for business but it is good for our greater human community.

With the knowledge we honed over the years, we began a consulting arm to our organization. Our goal has been to help fellow small businesses and large hospitals learn from lessons we have learned from serving over 70 providers in different healthcare environments. Leading to a small addition to our name in 2015, becoming BB Imaging and Healthcare Consulting.

We are incredibly grateful to our partner physicians and hospitals who have shared this vision with us. And we look forward to another decade of evolution, service, and excellence. I invite you to explore our company through our site, and if you have a passion for sonography and service to our community we invite you to join our team of extraordinary individuals.
