RAYUS Radiology Expands To Salt Lake City
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn; November 16, 2020 – RAYUS Radiology (RAYUS), one of the nation’s leading outpatient based imaging providers, has announced the acquisition of two established advanced medical imaging groups in Salt Lake City, Utah — Open Imaging and U.S. MRI – creating a combined network of eight outpatient imaging centers serving the Utah market.
“We’ve been very active in the market looking for attractive, strategic growth opportunities, and we’re excited to be entering the fast-growing Salt Lake City market with the acquisition of two first-rate organizations,” said Rick Long, RAYUS’s president and chief executive officer. “Open Imaging and U.S. MRI have a long history in Utah, and both are a natural fit for RAYUS with their shared commitment to quality, value, access and service excellence. Expect to see more acquisitions and partnerships in this and other markets across the U.S. that fit with this strategy.”
Open Imaging, with three locations, has been serving Utah for thirty years—providing patients and families throughout the Intermountain West with state-of-the-art MRI, CT and X-ray services. Open Imaging was founded on the goal of improving accessibility and quality of patient care.
U.S. MRI, with five locations, has been a fixture in Utah for more than twenty years providing an independent alternative to hospitals for patients needing MRI, CT, X-ray and Ultrasound. U.S. MRI has built its reputation providing an outstanding patient experience through superb customer service. And, they are the official medical provider for U.S. Ski and Snowboard, U.S. Speedskating, U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton, as well as several area college athletic programs.
“RAYUS is focused on acquiring and partnering with high quality providers in attractive markets. These are two great organizations that understand great quality and great patient experience. Bringing them together creates tremendous potential in Salt Lake City and the surrounding market areas,” said Adam Nielsen, RAYUS’s chief commercial officer. “It positions us as the leader in high-quality advanced medical imaging services in a market that is poised for even more growth.”
As the nation’s leader in outpatient-based diagnostic imaging and related services, RAYUS now manages more than 130 centers in 22 states. RAYUS combines the strength and efficiency of a robust national network with the flexibility and expertise of local partnerships. Each year, more than one million patients and their referring clinicians turn to RAYUS for high-quality, patient-centered and highly accessible care through its community-based multi-modality diagnostic imaging centers.
