SEATTLE, Nov. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Strategic Radiology enters the state of Washington with new member Skagit Radiology, based in Mount Vernon, Wash. The practice includes 17 subspecialty-trained radiologists, covers six hospitals in Washington and Alaska, and has served the region since 1972.
"Skagit Radiology has developed a high-service, subspecialized, patient-centered model to meet the needs of patients and partners in the key cities in Skagit County as well as rural communities in the region," said Scott Bundy, MD, FACR, CEO and Chair, Strategic Radiology (SR). "We are excited to welcome this innovative group into the coalition and introduce them to our unique process of sharing and collaborating."
In addition to covering hospitals, the practice has a strong outpatient imaging presence in its coverage area, operating two full-service imaging centers and partnering with Skagit Regional Health on a third. Skagit Radiology deployed advanced interoperability technology to connect all sites serviced by its subspecialized team trained in neuroradiology, musculoskeletal, breast, and body imaging, nuclear medicine, and cardiovascular and interventional radiology.
"Our group is a strongly independent, service-minded practice dedicated to providing our patients and partners with excellence in diagnostic and interventional imaging services," said Kelley L. Cline, MD, president of Skagit Radiology. "We hope to expand best practices, scale business operations, and leverage the group purchasing opportunities through our membership in Strategic Radiology."
Skagit Radiology is based in Mount Vernon, Washington, the county seat of Skagit County, and adjacent to a vast river delta that stretches west to the Puget Sound. Mountains surround the delta on three sides and support an area of fertile farmland settled by Swedish and Dutch immigrants, whose legacy lives on in the annual Skagit Valley Tulip Festival each spring.
