Sutter Health and Radiological Associates of Sacramento have agreed to join forces in providing diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology services across the greater Sacramento region.
Effective Feb. 1, Sutter Medical Foundation will own and operate RAS’ radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging services, and RAS shareholder physicians will join the Sutter Medical Group. It is expected that Sutter Health will have a need for the services of the current RAS employees.
“This is an exciting time for health care in our region as two quality organizations with long histories embark on a new chapter together,” said James Conforti, regional president of Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region. “Both Sutter and RAS believe it is always our duty to provide the most integrated, timely, accurate and high-quality medical care and service for patients. Our collaboration only strengthens that tradition.”
Sutter Health and RAS will work collaboratively to ensure all patient care is seamlessly transitioned. Services include diagnostic imaging (adult and pediatric), comprehensive women’s imaging, PET and nuclear medicine, radiation oncology, interventional and neurointerventional radiology, and teleradiology services.
