Strategic Radiology is a coalition of privately-owned independent, local radiology practices that have come together to improve quality, gain operational efficiencies, and innovate the future of radiology’s private practice model.
Our Physician Officers, Executive Committee, and Board of Managers take a collaborative approach to leadership. All member groups—from 8 to more than 170 radiologists—are owners or on an ownership track.
Strategic Radiology is 100% owned by radiologist member shareholders.
Our Mission is to improve lives by creating superior radiology value through collaboration and innovation among privately owned, independent radiology practices.
Strategic Radiology was founded in 2009 by 15 mostly large private radiology groups in response to declining reimbursement, increasing business complexity, and a perceived threat from corporate radiology entities. Meeting four times a year, our member groups achieved an uncommon trust by forging strong inter-practice bonds through sharing and collaboration.
We launched an affiliate program to enable smaller groups to experience member benefits. At the same time, private equity-financed corporate consolidators came at us, targeting large SR member practices for acquisition. Some chose to trade independence for dependence on a corporate owner. Our coalition came through this experience with a renewed commitment to independent radiology, owned and managed by radiologists.
Strategic Radiology now has one class of membership for all—ownership. We work together, a team of teams, to innovate solutions to common problems and create shared opportunities. Our vision for the future is simple—we aim to be recognized locally, regionally, and nationally for delivering exemplary imaging, clinical care, service, and value to our patients and clinical partners.
