Strategic Radiology makes first foray into New Mexico with addition of 42-physician practice

Strategic Radiology, a growing coalition of independent imaging groups, recently marked its first foray into New Mexico, adding a new member practice that employs 42 physicians.

Radiology Associates of Albuquerque was founded 45 years ago and boasts relationships across nine hospitals and multiple urgent care centers. The practice also has a “strong” ambulatory element that includes a freestanding center and two more outpatient locations run through a joint venture with Presbyterian Health Plan.

“We are committed to the communities that we serve, and we believe that joining Strategic Radiology is in the best interest of our healthcare partners and our patients,” Daniel Fuentes-Bernardo, MD, president of Radiology Associates of Albuquerque, said in an announcement shared Thursday.

RAA has worked with Presbyterian Healthcare Services for more than 30 years, operating as a hospital-based imaging group providing 24/7 services across the New Mexico system. It’s also active in the local and national healthcare communities, taking part in the New Mexico Medical Society, Radiology Business Management Association and American College of Radiology Data Registry.

Strategic Radiology, meanwhile, was founded in 2010 and now includes more than 30 member practices representing 1,500-plus physicians.
