Nov 10 14
RadNet, Inc. and Kennedy Health System announced the operational commencement of their previously announced multi-faceted Joint Venture in southern New Jersey, with the purchase of two outpatient facilities located at 157 Fries Mills Road, Turnersville, NJ and 999 Route 73 N, Marlton, NJ from Able Imaging. As previously announced, the Joint Venture -- Garden State Radiology Network, LLC -- was conceived to achieve several objectives. First, it establishes a cost effective, high quality medical imaging network that provides convenient access to the communities of southern New Jersey. This network will include Kennedy's outpatient imaging locations, RadNet's Haddon Heights imaging facility, the two newly acquired Able Imaging locations, along with the development of new southern New Jersey imaging facilities. The joint venture will also contract on behalf of its imaging network with regional payors, including commercial insurance companies, utilization and radiology benefit managers, workers' compensation carriers and all other health plans and local insurers. Lastly, it will seek to build or buy additional imaging centers or enter related healthcare businesses in southern New Jersey. This acquisition is an important step forward for the joint venture, as these centers are both full-service, multi-modality facilities featuring a 3 Tesla MRI, CT, digital mammography, bone densitometry, ultrasonography and digital radiographic services. The two newly acquired Able Imaging centers complement RadNet's Haddon Heights location and Kennedy Health System's Washington Township outpatient imaging facility, which includes the operation of PET/CT services.
