This acquisition also further broadens the scope of services we can provide to our hospital partners. Finally, vRad’s extensive investments in information technology and data analytics align well with our own commitment to improving both the quality and cost effectiveness of care.”

vRad’s current management team will join Mednax as part of the transaction. The company’s headquarters and 24/7 operations and client support center will continue to be based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota.
