PITTSBURGH, PA, March 24, 2015 – Foundation Radiology Group, one of the nation’s largest providers of radiology services to hospitals, has capped a year of growth in 2014 by appointing Dr. Richard Vance as Chief Executive Officer and board member.
A successful healthcare services executive, Dr. Vance has over 30 years of experience in healthcare services and IT, product development, research, and analytics and modeling, and has published more than 80 articles in national and industry publications. Dr. Vance has a BA from Wake Forest University, an MA from University of Chicago, and a MD from Wake Forest University.
“I am thrilled to join Foundation at this exciting time in its growth,” said Dr. Vance. “The company’s imaging services are best-in-class, which is reflected in their high quality and high productivity. This makes them a valued partner for hospitals looking to maintain on-site radiologists, subspecialty expertise and service level coverage at a reasonable cost.”
Dr. Vance, a pathologist by training, has been an Operating Partner at Chrysalis Ventures since 2007, in which capacity he has served as interim or permanent management at several portfolio companies. In addition, he is the former CEO and President of CorSolutions Medical, Inc., the nation’s second-largest disease management company until it was acquired by Matria Healthcare in 2006.
Dr. Vance’s appointment caps a successful year for Foundation Radiology in which the company launched operations at six new hospitals in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Kentucky, with two more since year end. As of December 31, 2014, Foundation Radiology delivers over one million final radiology interpretations on an annualized basis.
Foundation Radiology Group’s hybrid model allows on-site hospital-based radiologists to coordinate via a single integrated IT platform with additional sub-specialist radiologists operating out of a regional reading facility. This integration allows the company to offer better service levels and cost efficiency than either traditional on-site radiologists, or exclusively off-site radiologists. The company offers 7x24x365 coverage in the Mid-West and Mid-Atlantic regions.
