Size enables 24/7 coverage and expertise in all major subspecialties
FREDERICKSBURG, VA, JANUARY 6, 2015 – Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg (RAF) ranks among the 100 largest privately owned radiology practices in the U.S., Radiology Business Journal announced in its December issue.
The journal’s “Radiology 100” ranking for 2014 named RAF the 85th-largest privately owned radiology practice in the nation, based on the number of full-time equivalent radiologists: 29, explained Richard C. Pierson, a financial consultant for the practice. RAF was one of seven practices in Virginia recognized in the ranking.
Dr. David L. Glasser, president of RAF and a board-certified, fellowship-trained diagnostic radiologist, noted, “As a practice we have chosen to maintain the size necessary to ensure high-quality services to our patients, referring physicians, and health facilities. For example, we believe that our role as consultants to the physicians in our community does not end after normal office hours. Whenever a patient’s physician has a question or needs to discuss a case, 24/7, 365 days a year, one of our local radiologists is available for a consultation.”
CEO Ed Swager added, “Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg also is committed to providing subspecialized services in all major areas of radiology. Our physicians are all board certified and fellowship trained, with expertise in subspecialties including body imaging, cardiac imaging, interventional radiology, musculoskeletal imaging, neuroradiology, and nuclear medicine. Rather than having to travel to a major medical center, patients benefit from these services close to home.”
Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg is the largest provider of medical imaging services in the Fredericksburg, Virginia, region, including Spotsylvania and Stafford counties. The group’s 29 radiologists and two vascular surgeons serve patients at two hospitals (Mary Washington Hospital and Stafford Hospital), four imaging facilities (Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg, the Imaging Center for Women, Medical Imaging at Lee’s Hill, and Medical Imaging of North Stafford), and RAF’s interventional radiology practice, Virginia Interventional & Vascular Associates. The practice’s radiologists also interpret all imaging studies for Stafford Hospital Imaging in Woodbridge.
