MEDNAX announced Thursday it has acquired Hartford, Conn.-based Jefferson Radiology and Jefferson Imaging Associates. It was a cash transaction, and no other terms of the deal were made public.
“We are excited about the growth of radiology physician services at MEDNAX and our ability to attract leading radiology providers such as Jefferson Radiology, further enhancing our integrated physician services offering,” said Roger J. Medel, MD, MEDNAX CEO, in a published statement. “The world-class technological capabilities MEDNAX offers through vRad, combined with our own practice-management expertise and physician-centric leadership, make us a valuable partner to radiology practices.”
Jefferson Radiology has been in business since 1963 and employs 60 physicians. Ethan Foxman, MD, PhD, president and CEO of Jefferson Radiology, said in the same statement it was a “natural fit” to work with MEDNAX.
“We were drawn to the energy and excitement of MEDNAX’S mission to build the top radiology platform nationally and beyond, and wanted to be part of a team that is leading the best practices in radiology and reshaping the next generation of how radiology services will be delivered,” he said.
