MEDNAX acquires Jefferson Radiology, its third practice in 2017

MEDNAX has acquired Hartford–based Jefferson Radiology and Jefferson Imaging Associates as part of MEDNAX’s vRad—a global teleradiology company with over 500 U.S. board-certified radiologists.

This marks the third radiology services practice acquisition in 2017.

At present, vRad radiologists interpret and process patient imaging studies for 2,100 hospital, health system and radiology group facilities nationwide.

“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, CEO of MEDNAX. “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. We see many exciting opportunities with Jefferson Radiology, particularly given the group’s longstanding leadership position in the field and its strategic partnerships with several key regional hospitals.”

The most recent radiology practice acquisition by MEDNAX was announced in August when it acquired Miami-based Radiology Associates of South Florida.
