Commonwealth Radiology Associates (CRA) is the largest private practice radiology group in Massachusetts, providing imaging expertise in the northern suburbs of Boston, Mass.

October 8, 2021 — Commonwealth Radiology Associates (CRA) is the largest private practice radiology group in Massachusetts, providing imaging expertise in the northern suburbs of Boston, Mass. CRA announced a new partnership with world-renowned teaching hospital Tufts Medical Center (TMC) that will elevate quality, improve coverage, and enhance radiologist recruitment.

According to Michael Tarnoff, M.D., FACS, President and CEO of Tufts Medical Center, “This first-in-the-market model will establish a much larger team of subspecialty-trained radiologists, leading to broader coverage, improved service, and an attractive work environment to lure top talent. Our radiologists will now have opportunities to work in a city-based academic medical center and/or a community environment in the suburbs.”

Founded in 2002, CRA currently provides world-class radiology services at 18 locations in Northeastern Massachusetts, including Lowell General Hospital and MelroseWakefield Healthcare. While TMC’s 20 radiologists will still work for the Tufts Medical Center Physician Organization, they will also integrate with CRA and its 71 experienced radiologists. For the first time in its history, CRA will embrace an academic mission, adding an academic committee to its governance structure.

“The radiologists at Tufts Medical Center excel in tertiary/quaternary radiology – working on the toughest cases in the area. They also do the critical work of research and educating the next generation of radiologists,” said Al Hoffman, M.D., President and CEO of CRA. “Our newly expanded group will enhance the Tufts MC academic mission by improving resident and medical student experience through broader exposure to faculty, new skillsets, and potentially new training environments.”

The new integration is set to begin on October 1, 2021.
