Radiology Associates of North Texas, P.A. (RADNTX) has announced that Tyler Radiology Associates and East Texas Radiology Consultants are merging with RADNTX. With this merger, RADNTX is welcoming 28 new radiologists, expanding the practice to over 200 physicians. RADNTX continues to be the largest private radiology practice in Texas and one of the largest in the nation with plans for continued expansion.
Both practices decided to merge after connecting with RADNTX’s Independent Radiology Network (IRN). The IRN is designed to provide expanded resources and improved quality for private practice radiology practices throughout Texas and the surrounding states. Partnering with other high-performing regional radiologists is a foundational endeavor of RADNTX’s physician leadership.
“Tyler Radiology Associates (TRA) is proud to enter into a partnership with Radiology Associates of North Texas (RADNTX). TRA believes in independent, physician-led radiology practices. After evaluating several options, we are excited to have found a partner that shares our values and vision for health care in East Texas. RADNTX has an outstanding reputation throughout the radiology and DFW communities. We believe this partnership will strengthen our practice and allow us to meet the demands of our growing region and the ever-changing health care industry. RADNTX’s robust infrastructure, IT systems and sharing of best practices will allow TRA to expand our superior service to our health care providers and continue excellence in clinical care for our patients throughout East Texas,” Dr. Robert Weissmann with Tyler Radiology Associates said.
RADNTX’s goal through the IRN is to provide Texas-based radiology practices, who desire to remain independent and wholly physician-owned but require expanded service levels, access to RADNTX’s world-class infrastructure. Through the IRN, RADNTX is able to provide practices with information technology services that include an integrated worklist driven platform, as well as billing and revenue cycle management, clinical coordination, increased sub-specialization, overnight final reads, quality and compliance programs, analytics and reporting, business services and much more. Both practices ultimately decided to merge after a comprehensive evaluation of the RADNTX culture and robust practice infrastructure.
“What initially brought us to Radiology Associates was its reputation for honesty, integrity, and quality in the radiology market. Radiology Associates’ goal is to provide maximum support for the continued private practice of radiology in the state of Texas. For private practice to survive and prosper, a large organization dedicated to their members, fellow physicians, and patients is paramount. The practice provides excellent benefits, a preeminent IT platform, outstanding teleradiology services, and the finest radiologists including subspecialty referrals. From the beginning we were treated as colleagues! They also have a reputation for active support in the community. What’s not to like!” said Dr. Randy Erwin with East Texas Radiology Consultants.
Additionally, RADNTX was recently selected as the exclusive professional radiology services provider for Northwest Texas Healthcare System in Amarillo, Texas through the IRN. The Texas Department of State Health Services has designated this facility as the Lead Trauma Facility for the top 26 counties within the Texas Panhandle. Its 495-bed acute care hospital is nationally known for heart, emergency, stroke and children’s care.
