IMPORTANT NEWS � ROSE RADIOLOGY CENTERS JOINS AKUMIN
We are pleased to announce that Akumin has completed its transaction for the imaging centers operated by Rose Radiology Centers Inc. (�RRC�), a company owned by Dr. Manuel Rose, a radiologist and an entrepreneur who built RRC over the past two decades into a leading provider of outpatient diagnostic imaging services in the Tampa Bay Area with an outstanding reputation for service excellence and leading-edge technology. Dr. Rose will continue as employee/radiologist of RRC and a senior advisor to the management team of Akumin. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Rose and all the RRC employees that have contributed to amazing success of RRC to the Akumin family.
Akumin�s vision is to be the leading provider of outpatient imaging services across the Unites States in multiple key geographic markets. With the addition of RRC, we now add another 11 clinics in Florida�s west coast, plus a twelfth clinic under development expected to open this September. This is a great fit to the four centers we acquired in the area in May 2018 (including three centers in the Tampa Bay Area previously owned by West Coast Radiology). This not only makes us the largest operator in the west coast of Florida, but also giving us a vast and diverse footprint across the state.
With this transaction and our continued growth in existing and new geographic markets, we are able to better service our patients and radiologists in each of their respective communities. We also remain unwavering in our mission to improve the quality of care and health of our patients by providing a consistent experience and a reliable service level to our patients, referring physicians and payors across all of our markets.
This is an exciting development for all of us � We have already started integration planning for RRC�s clinics and we will keep all of you updated as we make progress towards our end goal. In the meantime, I ask you to remain focused on delivering against your performance goals and objectives. Your continued commitment to your daily job responsibilities and to our patients will be critical to our ongoing success.
I know you will have questions along the way, and we will do our best to address them as quickly as possible. In the meantime, please send any questions you have to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued commitment to Akumin�s vision, mission and goals.
