Sacramento-based Sutter Health cuts ties with longtime radiology partner

Sacramento Bee, February 11, 2010

Sutter Health is cutting ties with its decades-long partner, Radiological Associates of Sacramento, from its capital hospitals and plans to expand its own imaging services. RAS executives said they were taken by surprise last fall when Sutter negotiators broke off talks that would have extended the radiology firm's contract with the hospital system beyond March 31, the Sacramento Bee reports. Doctors from RAS have handled such imaging services as X-rays and CT scans in Sutter facilities since Sutter General Hospital opened in 1923.
