Radiology Partners (RP) has completed its approximately $885 million acquisition of Mednax Radiology Solutions, pending regulatory approvals. The combination of RP and Mednax Radiology Solutions brings together more than 2,400 radiologists.

“This is a significant chapter in the history of our pPractice, and we are thrilled to welcome hundreds of Mednax radiologists and support team members to the RP family,” says Rich Whitney, RP chairman and CEO. “Together, we will continue to elevate radiologists’ role in our healthcare system as we advance our mission to transform radiology. We look forward to expanded and meaningful collaboration in the areas of clinical innovation, subspecialty coverage, advanced technology and growth opportunities.”

Mednax announced its intent to divest its radiology division in June 2020. Moreover, says Ricardo C. Cury, MD, FACR, chief medical officer of Mednax Radiology Solutions, “Since RP’s intent was announced in September, we’ve thought a great deal about how a combined practice will enhance our capabilities for clinical care.”

“With the deal’s completion, it’s now time to roll up our sleeves and get to work on creating new pathways for innovation, leveraging our combined strengths and, ultimately, improving patient care,” Cury adds.

The combination of RP and Mednax Radiology solutions will extend coverage into new areas while also expanding coverage in existing areas.
