TACOMA, Wash., Dec. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- TRA Medical Imaging (TRA) and Medical Imaging Northwest (MINW), two of the leading medical imaging providers in the South Sound, announced today that the two companies have completed their merger and will operate administratively as TRA-MINW starting January 1, 2017.
Despite dramatic changes to the national and regional health care landscape in recent years, TRA and MINW have maintained a common core value: Patients come first. This merger brings together experience to drive innovative quality improvement and enhanced value for the patients, providers, and health systems they serve in Washington State.
"The scale of the combined groups allows us to provide expanded subspecialty services across the care continuum to a larger population of patients. With that comes the opportunity to standardize care across this region based on best practices and best available evidence, as well as to provide continuity of care across the population we serve," said Douglas Seiler, M.D., Radiologist and President of TRA Medical Imaging.
Dr. Katherine Choi-Chinn, Radiologist and Executive Chair of MINW adds, "Coming together allows us to create security in this shifting health care landscape, to collaborate in support of a shared purpose, and to remain focused on what is most important to us - providing the highest quality patient care in our area."
TRA-MINW is a local partnership of sub-specialized radiologists providing high quality, patient-centered care since the early 1940s. Now serving both CHI Franciscan Health and MultiCare Health Systems, we provide over 1.2 million interpretations annually. TRA-MINW will serve 11 area hospitals, 12 outpatient sites, and related medical clinics across the systems including urgent care locations.
