Radiology Associates of North Texas (RANT), the number one practice on Radiology Business Journal’s ranking of the 100 largest private radiology practices, has hired Corbin Wilson, JD, CMPE, as CEO after a ten-month search.

At his previous post, Wilson was executive director, president, the JPS Physician Group, a multispecialty practice that provides internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine and urgent care to JPS Health Network, Tarrant County, with more than 180 physicians and mid-level providers. Prior to that, Wilson spent 10 years as assistant district attorney serving as in-house legal counsel for the Tarrant County Hospital District.

“With his combined experience in large-group practice management and healthcare law, we feel that Corbin is ideally suited to guide the continued expansion of Radiology Associates throughout North Texas,” said David Phelps, MD, president, RANT.  “Our belief is that Corbin is the ideal individual to lead Radiology Associates forward as we strengthen our ability to meet and exceed the needs of our patients, referring physicians, hospital partners and outpatient imaging partners.”

The 124-radiologist RANT was formed in a three-way practice merger in 2011, and became the highest-ranking practice on the RBJ list in 2012.  The practice provides professional radiology services to 26 North Texas hospitals and more than 80 Texas-based imaging centers and physician practices.

“Radiology Associates of North Texas is uniquely positioned as a dynamic leader in the transformation of professional radiology services in our region, and I could not be more excited to have the opportunity to be part of their team,” Wilson said in a prepared statement.  “My goal is to continue improving upon the performance excellence that has made Radiology Associates a provider of choice and to work closely with our patients, hospitals and imaging center partners to demonstrate our value and exceed expectations.”

RANT has been without a CEO since the departure of Mark Kleinschmidt in April of 2014.
