Who are we?
Equine MRI of Wellington, LLC, d/b/a Advanced Equine Imaging of Wellington (AEIW), is an equine MRI referral center located in Loxahatchee, Florida. For the past two years, we are proud to have been the busiest standing MRI in private practice in the United States. Since its inception in 2012, we have offered world class imaging services to patients that have traveled to south Florida from around the world to participate in the Winter Equestrian Festival. AEIW is owned by B.W. Furlong & Associates, an equine veterinary practice that is headquartered in Oldwick, NJ, but has an active presence in Wellington, FL during the winter months.
We pride ourselves on the quality of the services we offer; not just the images that we produce but also the customer service we offer to our referring veterinarians. Our team is made up of a managing veterinarian, imaging technician, and imaging assistant. This small team works effectively together, using precise communication and by setting clear expectations. We are proud of the quality of work that we do and the reputation that we have built for our business.
Where are we?
AEIW is located just minutes outside of Wellington, Florida, in the surrounding farmland of Loxahatchee, FL. In the winter months, Wellington is the equine capital of the world, based on the influx of horses to compete in winter show circuits. We are only a few miles away from Palm Beach International Equestrian Center, home of the Winter Equestrian Festival. Our 10 acre property houses our imaging center, barn, and shared office space with the B.W. Furlong & Associates veterinary team.
