Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic announced the launch of a partnership with Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants, a newly formed radiology practice that offers on-site, academic-level radiology services across the broad spectrum of subspecialty care. Effective now, Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants serves as the exclusive diagnostic imaging provider across all Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic hospitals and locations, including St. Mary Medical Center.

“This is a first for our region,” said Jim Woodward, president and CEO of Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic. “A direct partnership between a health system and independent radiology physicians hasn’t been done before at another health system in the greater Philadelphia area.” 

Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants was formed by radiologists from Mercy Diagnostic Imaging, who previously served as diagnostic imaging providers at Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic, along with the addition of radiology professionals from the Radiology Group of Abington and other independent radiologists in the region. 

“These highly skilled, speciality trained physicians represent the best radiology professions that our region has to offer, and our patients will benefit immensely from having all subspecialty care available on-site throughout our entire system,” said Woodward. “Importantly, this new partnership brings radiology services back to the bedside, reversing a growing trend in the healthcare industry to outsource these types of services to large-scale radiology corporations, whose physicians often never set foot in the hospitals where they operate.”

In addition to employing the region’s best practicing radiology professionals, Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants is also developing the radiologists of the future. With a robust academic residency program that offers training in all areas of subspecialty care, Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants is uniquely positioned to train and retain the next generation of radiologists, which is critical as the number of radiology vacancies in the region continue to outpace the number of radiology graduates.

“You won’t find this level of dedication to radiology services anywhere else in the region,” said Oleg Teytelboym, MD, a board certified radiologist and chair of the Department of Radiology at Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital, who now serves as the president of Mid Atlantic Radiology Consultants. “From standard services to neurologic, oncologic, cardiac and other subspecialty care, Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic patients now have the most broad, highest level of radiology services available in the region.”
