HUDSON, Ohio, and ATLANTA, Georgia (October 10, 2016) – Aris Radiology, a leading provider of professional radiology services, today announced it has acquired Atlanta-based US Teleradiology (“UST”). With more than 250 radiologists who interpret an estimated 2.5 million studies annually across 400 client sites, the combined group will continue to provide a full range of staffing and radiology services to hospitals, health systems and other medical facilities.
“We are extremely excited about the combined expertise and resources of UST and Aris Radiology,” said Carl Kozlowski, Aris president and CEO. “UST has built a strong network of highly trained radiologists and a reputation for professional excellence, which will only enhance our ability to deliver the highest quality of care and service to the hospitals, physicians and patients we serve.”
Founded in 2001, UST is a physician-owned radiology practice providing staffing and teleradiology services to hospitals, radiology groups and other medical facilities around the country. Operating under the Aris name, the combined group will continue to provide a full complement of radiology services including on-site physician coverage, management and business development support, as well as 24/7 access to one of the nation’s largest network of subspecialized radiologists.
“We are honored and excited to partner with a group of integrity such as Aris,” said UST CEO Francis Ferraro, MD. “Our organizations have always been the most patient- and physician-centric providers in this space and this combination will allow us to bring greater speed and depth of resources to our partners.”
Aris will maintain its Hudson, Ohio, headquarters as well as additional offices in Nashville, Tennessee; Tampa, Florida; and Atlanta, Georgia. Dr. Ferraro will join Aris as a member of its physician leadership team, serving as director of physician and clinical relations and chief medical officer for its California operations.
