On October 10, 2016, Aris Radiology, a GPP portfolio company, announced it had acquired US Teleradiology (UST), based in Atlanta, Georgia. UST is a radiology practice providing professional radiology services to medical centers across the United States. With UST added to its portfolio, Aris now has over 250 radiologists interpreting about 2.5 million results annually in more than 30 states. This firmly entrenches Aris as a premier player in radiology consolidation.
Speaking at the announcement, Aris President Carl Kozlowski expressed excitement about the new partnership that would see Aris and UST combine their resources to further solidify their hospital relationships by providing round-the-clock full subspecialty coverage to clients. Following the acquisition, Dr. Francis Ferraro, the former chief executive officer of UST, will join Aris as director of physician and clinical relations for Aris’ California operations.
