MACON, Ga., Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Strategic Radiology (SR) announced the addition of Radiology Associates
"Radiology Associates of Macon is a strong proponent of radiologist ownership of patient care and practice decisions," said Arl Van Moore, Jr., MD, FACR, CEO and chair, SR. "As leaders of quality evaluation and improvement in the health systems they serve, Radiology Associates of Macon brings the commitment to excellence shared by all SR member practices."
The Macon, Ga.-based practice includes 30 radiologists and three radiation oncologists and serves six hospital and numerous outpatient care locations with subspecialized radiology, leadership, and radiation oncology services. RAM maintains a strong outpatient presence, providing diagnostic and interventional radiology and radiation oncology services at multiple outpatient locations, including joint ventures with several health systems.
"The acquisition of medical practices by private equity is the most disconcerting development in the 42-year history of our group," said Mark Grossnickle, MD, president, RAM. "In aligning with Strategic Radiology, we restate our commitment to independent radiology by establishing connections with other, similar independent groups for the purpose of improving our practices."
RAM provides professional medical services to six hospitals and nearly a dozen outpatient imaging locations in Bibb County, Georgia. It joins core practice Quantum Radiology, Atlanta, Ga., and affiliate group Rome Radiology Group, Rome, Ga., as SR's third member practice in the Peach State.
