Radiology Associates of North Texas Sells Majority of Their Outpatient Imaging Centers!

Since 1937, the practice now known as Radiology Associates of North Texas has been
synonymous with quality, innovation and collaboration. Our commitment to providing
high quality professional radiology services has always been the core tenet of our practice philosophy. In 1982 our physicians decided to open the first of many state-of-the-art outpatient imaging centers in the DFW Metroplex. For over 30 years, our imaging centers have partnered with the DFW medical community to provide our patients with the very best in diagnostic imaging.

Now, as our industry changes, we must adapt to meet the challenges presented in the new health care environment. Therefore, in the coming year (2014), Radiology Associates will be transitioning away from ownership of imaging centers and focusing our efforts solely on providing high quality, sub-specialized professional interpretations to our hospital, imaging center and physician practice clients.

As a part of this transition, Radiology Associates will be selling the majority of our outpatient imaging centers in the DFW Metroplex. Our radiologists will continue to read for each of our former centers and the new ownership has committed to providing the same level of service you have come to expect from Radiology Associates. In an effort to make this a smooth transition, all phone numbers will stay the same. Here is a list of imaging centers along with their new owners.

  • Weatherford Imaging Center - CHS Weatherford Regional Medical Center
  • Granbury Imaging Center - CHS Lake Granbury Medical Center
  • PET/CT Center of Fort Worth - The Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders
  • Cleburne Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • Hulen Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • Center for Diagnostic Imaging - Envision Imaging
  • Pennsylvania Avenue Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • South Arlington Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • North Arlington Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • Bedford Imaging Center - Envision Imaging
  • Southlake Imaging Center - Envision Imaging

Radiology Associates will continue to own and operate the Prestonwood Imaging Center in North Dallas and Village Imaging in Plano.

Thank you for partnering with Radiology Associates in the care of your patients!

Merger to become 2nd Largest Radiology Group in the Nation!

FORT WORTH, Texas (March 2, 2011) Radiology Associates of Tarrant County (RATC) today announced Southwest Imaging and Interventional Specialists (SIIS) and Grapevine Radiology Associates (GRA) have entered an agreement to merge their respective radiology practices, effective March 1.

With headquarters in Fort Worth, the new group will operate under the name Radiology Associates of North Texas and employ 110 board certified radiologists and 260 additional medical and administration staff.

    

The newly created group is the largest in the state of Texas and is currently one of the largest in the U.S., based on a December 2010 survey of U.S. radiology practices published in the Radiology Business Journal (click here to read the article).  At present, it is the second largest group in the country.

“We are pleased to be able to continue building our team of medical professionals,” said RATC President Dr. John Queralt. “The goal of this merger is to leverage the strengths of all three groups and give the combined group a critical mass of resources to meet the ever increasing expectations of patients and the medical community for quality medical care.  In the current health care climate, it is likely that service demands will continue to increase and having a larger group allows for subspecialty depth and the financial strength to provide the highest level of service.”

RATC currently provides professional radiology interpretation services to 12 hospitals and 13 company-owned imaging centers in Tarrant County. The practice also provides professional radiology interpretation and imaging management services to a number of other health care providers in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

The merger with SIIS and GRA will add six hospitals and five area imaging centers to the new entity providing improved imaging services with a full range of subspecialty radiology coverage to patients, physicians and hospitals in the DFW Metroplex.
