Foundation Radiology Group, the Pittsburgh based and 7th largest privately held radiology practice in the US, has been selected a finalist to the Pittsburgh Tech 50 for the third consecutive year. The Pittsburgh Technology Council Tech 50 recognizes local organizations that are successfully incorporating technology into their business models in a variety of categories. Foundation Radiology Group has been selected as a finalist in the Life Sciences category. Companies in this area improve our health and environment. Candidates deliver medical equipment; pharmaceuticals; health services; and biomedical, agricultural and environmental products and services.
Foundation Radiology Group provides expanded subspecialty radiology services to community based hospitals that previously may have only been able to provide a limited scope of these services. This industry is referred to as teleradiology, which is the electronic transmission of patient images, such as x-rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another for the purposes of interpretation and/or consultation. Teleradiology improves patient care by allowing radiologists to provide services without actually having to be at the location of the patient. This allows community hospitals to compete with large metropolitan heath systems by providing an equal or superior level of service to patients and physicians.
“It’s an honor to be selected as a finalist in this category since Pittsburgh is home to so many innovative life sciences companies,” said Tom Skelton, CEO of Foundation Radiology Group. “Foundation’s being named to this list for the third consecutive year is a demonstration of our employee’s commitment providing excellent service and to delivering on our mission to revolutionize the practice of radiology in community healthcare settings.”
This year’s finalists reside in a total of seven distinct categories within the 13-county area of southwestern Pennsylvania for 2011. Winners will be announced at a gala awards ceremony on Sept. 20, 2011 at the CONSOL Energy Arena.
