DENVER, Oct. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Radiology Imaging Associates, PC will welcome 20 physicians from Rocky Mountain Radiologists, PC to the RIA practice on January 1, 2020.
“The two practices are naturally compatible,” said Andrew Fisher, MD, MBA, member of the RIA Board of Directors, and director of the RIA/RMR integration initiative. “We are delighted to welcome RMR to RIA. Our two groups share values for putting patients at the center of everything we do. Our teams of physicians are sub-specialized and fellowship-trained radiologists. We agree that timely and collaborative service to our referring healthcare providers is a hallmark of our respective practices, which we will continue to deliver together,” said Fisher.
Along with 18 sub-specialized physicians in body imaging radiology, breast imaging radiology, musculoskeletal imaging radiology and neuroradiology, RMR will bring two Interventional Radiologists (IR) to join RIA IR physicians, national leaders in the field. Taken together, the two practices will number more than 120 radiologists.
“One of the most important factors in the decision by our practice to join RIA was our unified desire to remain independent and physician-owned,” said Brian L. Ravert, MD, and President, RMR. “We choose to fulfill that goal with RIA and work with them to identify efficiencies in the practice of radiology and clinical quality that will benefit our patients, providers, and shareholders,” said Ravert.
