Scripps Health purchases Imaging Healthcare Specialists

Scripps Health has signed a purchase agreement with Imaging Healthcare Specialists LLC, a network of ambulatory radiology centers with eight locations in San Diego and Riverside counties. The deal is anticipated to be completed by March 31.

Imaging Healthcare Specialists will retain its name and brand identity and will continue its relationship with the contracted physicians of Radiology Medical Group and Physicians Radiology Medical Group. Both of these groups will remain independent.

"This acquisition expands Scripps’ ability to provide convenient access to radiology services for our patients across the county,” said Chris Van Gorder, president and CEO of Scripps Health. "Imaging Healthcare Specialists is a strong company with a reputation for quality care, as is Scripps. We think this is an excellent fit for both organizations, and is structured to allow Imaging Healthcare Specialists to continue its successful business model.”

Imaging Healthcare Specialists offers a range of outpatient radiology services, from mammography and traditional X-ray services to advanced CT, MRI, PET/CT, nuclear medicine and interventional radiology services. Founded 30 years ago, the radiology network has 23 radiologists who practice at eight locations in Chula Vista, Hillcrest, College Area, University City, Encinitas, Poway, Oceanside and Temecula.
