Radiology Partners Continues Strategic Growth During the COVID-19 Pandemic
(EL SEGUNDO, Calif.) August 6, 2020 – Radiology Partners (RP), the leading radiology practice in the U.S., today announced continued rapid growth through numerous client and practice partnerships and record physician recruitment, both of which have accelerated since the onset of COVID-19.
Since January, RP has expanded its footprint in eight states: Florida, Texas, South Carolina, Ohio, Illinois, California, New Mexico and Louisiana, and entered two new states: New York and Missouri. In total, the Practice has added 82 new client sites thus far in 2020, representing an additional 2 million annual exams.
To support the rapid growth, RP’s physician recruitment team successfully hired more than 220 radiologists since January 2020, representing record-breaking levels of new radiologists joining RP. New efficiencies, such as tele-interviewing and advanced on-boarding and licensing programs, allowed RP to accelerate pace of hiring at its practices across the country.
Additionally, RP has agreed to multiple new partnerships with independent radiology practices across five states. The partnerships are expected to close in the near future.
“The growth of our Practice reflects the success of our unique model – pairing the benefits of scale with local practice autonomy, physician leadership and physician ownership,” said Rich Whitney, Chief Executive Officer, Radiology Partners. “Additionally, our client partners understand the value they receive through RP’s stability, our physicians’ expertise, and the resources and network of a national practice.”
“These are challenging times for all of us in radiology. RP’s continued growth, both in terms of clients served and number of radiologists, is a result of our strong financial position and ability to stay true to our mission and values,” said Dr. Anthony Gabriel, Chief Operating Officer, Radiology Partners. “We are proud to serve so many important sites of care around the country. As we grow, we will also continue to invest in our physician-led, patient-centric practice model, and work together to improve the care of patients.”
