US Radiology Specialists notes this partnership accelerates US Radiology’s growth towards building the nation’s leading outpatient imaging services network, extending its presence in the southeast and serving more patients and referring physicians throughout the state.
“This partnership strengthens our national outpatient imaging portfolio and fits within our strategy to partner with high-quality radiology groups, top hospital systems, and the best outpatient imaging providers across the nation,” said John Perkins, CEO of US Radiology. “ImageSouth is a leader in diagnostic imaging in Alabama and has developed an excellent reputation among patients and referring physicians for delivering high-quality outpatient imaging services.”
