We are pleased to announce that effective January 1, 2017, TRA Medical Imaging and Medical Imaging Northwest will come together to better serve our communities. The merging of our two companies will combine our strengths and allow us to drive innovative quality improvement and enhanced value for our patients, providers, and heath systems we serve.
The decision to merge our companies was carefully planned. As we continue to face changes to national and regional health care, TRA and MINW have maintained a common core value: Patients come first. Bringing together our skilled teams will allow us to provide the community with expanded subspecialty services to a larger population of patients. Merging will allow us to collaborate in support of a shared purpose and remain focused on what is most important - providing the highest quality patient care.
TRA and MINW have a long history rooted in our communities. The founding physicians of our respective groups worked together and with the local hospitals before dividing into TRA Medical Imaging (1943) and Medical Imaging Northwest (1958). Today, we find ourselves reunited under a common vision to support the patients and referring physicians in King, Pierce and Thurston counties.
We are excited about this new venture and look forward to being your imaging provider of choice.
