Family business. Family values. Medical excellence. In 1972, Tom and Mary Shields owned and operated the Madalawn Nursing Home in Brockton, Massachusetts, and committed themselves to exceptional patient care and clinical excellence. Over the next 10 years, Tom and Mary established the largest regional dialysis center in New England. Bringing exceptional care to the local community was a model they would repeat with the opening of the first independent regional MRI center in 1986. Today, we’ve expanded to more than 30 facilities throughout New England, offering MRI, PET/CT, and radiation therapy services with an extraordinary team of caring professionals—while remaining a family-owned and operated organization. Offering the most advanced technology available, Shields does so at savings to patients of up to 60% compared to others. As we look to the future, the Shields family’s commitment to patients, providers, partners, and families will always be providing breakthrough technology with the highest standard of care.
