March 30 is National Doctors’ Day, and we are thrilled to celebrate the more than 2,700 radiologists who choose to be part of Radiology Partners. Today, we honor each of you and thank you for your dedicated service to patients, referring clinicians and our clients.
Nearly a decade ago, we founded RP with a mission to transform radiology. It was and is a bold aspiration, and today we are proud to work alongside the best radiologists and best clinical leaders in healthcare. RP radiologists lead their practices locally and have access to national scale resources to provide the best radiology care and services in communities we serve. Nationally, radiologist leaders are advancing clinical value at scale—driving best practices and clinical protocols forward, creating new programs and ensuring every RP radiologist can tap into our vast network of expertise and resources. Whether zoomed in on a local practice or zoomed out to see the big picture, everything we do and aspire to do at RP is centered around and grounded by you—radiologists. Today, we celebrate all of you: more than 2,700 RP radiologists, more than 60 local practice Presidents and Local Practice Boards, 17 Associate Chief Medical Officers, 48 members of our Clinical Value Team and 18 Physician Support Boards. Your expertise, leadership and contributions embody our mission, values and practice principles every day.
Finally, we would be remiss if we did not acknowledge our latest partner elevation class, which was our largest ever. Congratulations to the 113 physicians who were elevated to partner during our March 2022 ceremonies. Physician ownership is one of our practice principles, and today more than 50% of RP radiologists are owners in RP. Intrinsic motivation to make a difference in the lives of patients combined with the personal commitment of being an owner in the practice sparks an exceptional commitment to clinical quality and innovation and a deep sense of loyalty to the practice and each other. Congratulations, and welcome to the partnership!
Happy National Doctors’ Day to RP physicians and all physicians. Thank you for all you do. We are incredibly proud to be your partners and to support your important work.
With enormous respect and sincere appreciation,
Rich Whitney, Chairman and CEO
Dr. Anthony Gabriel, Chief Operating Officer
