Strategic Radiology, a growing coalition of independent imaging practices, named Scott Bundy, MD, as its new chairman and chief executive officer on Thursday.
He replaces Arl Van Moore Jr., MD, who is retiring from the post this month. Bundy is a longtime neuroradiologist who plans to continue practicing part time with member group Radiology Associates of North Texas, in Dallas, following his appointment.
“Strategic Radiology has a talented, committed and seasoned leader in Dr. Scott Bundy, and I couldn’t be more confident that SR is in good hands,” Moore, who will serve as interim medical director of the group’s patient safety organization, said in a statement. “The membership made an excellent choice. He understands the culture, he knows the players, and I know he will come out of the gate ready for action.”
Bundy previously served on SR’s board of managers and executive committee and has practiced as a neuroradiologist for 20 years in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. He’s also served as chairman of Radiology Associates’ business development committee and medical director at several imaging facilities in North Texas, according to the announcement. RADNTX, as it’s called for short, merged with two other providers last year, forming one of the biggest private practices in the country, leaders said at the time.
Palmetto, Florida-based Strategic Radiology bills itself as an independent alliance of rad practices, now representing 29 doc groups, operating across 35 states and employing 1,300-plus physicians.
