vRad y fusión completa de NightHawk

por Brendon Nafziger, DOTmed News Associate Editor | December 22, 2010
Virtual Radiologic said Wednesday it completed its merger with rival, Scottsdale, Ariz.-based NightHawk Radiology, making the joint business arguably the largest teleradiology firm around. Eden Prairie, Minn.-based vRad announced it would buy NightHawk for $170 million in September.

The combined group is affiliated with 325 radiologists and serves around 2,700 health care facilities across the country, reading nearly 7 million studies annually, the companies said.

vRad tried to reassure radiologists it wasn't out to compete with them, and that one of its main strategies is to work with them for night reads or offering access to specialists.
