Capital Solution
6.

With OIA investing its own capital and with non-recourse financing, the effect on the hospital’s balance sheet is minimal.

Dr. Vijay Rao, Chairman of Radiology Dept.

“OIA has done a quality job of helping to expand JURA’s reach into the community by negotiating acquisitions, arranging financing, effectively marketing and managing all JURA locations while continuing to look for other expansion opportunities. It would not have been possible to bring all of this to such a successful and timely conclusion without OIA’s resources, expertise and capital.”

Dr. Annette Johnson, Chair of the Department of Radiology

“OIA brings an entrepreneurial approach to its management philosophy and knows that to compete in an outpatient environment, the center needs to be consumer and retail oriented. This is not an expertise we had within the hospital.”

Sal Inciardi, Senior Vice President of Business Development

“We evaluated a number of companies and OIA’s track record of professionalism and success really stood out. We believe this partnership will further enhance Meridian’s reputation as the premier integrated health system in the areas we currently serve and have targeted for future growth.”

Dr. Allen Elster, Chairman of Radiology Dept.

“The hospital has always done an exceptional job taking care of patients. The imaging center extends the hospital’s extensive services platform by addressing patients’ and referring physicians’ demands for more patient friendly locations. With easy parking, convenient access, timely appointments, quick report turnarounds and a welcoming atmosphere, our outpatient imaging center will greatly benefit the community.”

David C. Levin, MD, Former Chairman of Radiology Dept.

“None of this could have happened without the involvement of OIA. Neither I nor our business manager had the time for a project of this magnitude. OIA evaluated our local market and prepared related financial pro-formas which indicated the venture would have an excellent chance of success. Their willingness to share the financial risk with us on that basis really helped to convince my group and the administration that the plan was feasible. Once the center opened, OIA took over the day-to-day management, marketing and billing and has done an excellent job.”

Larry Fitzgerald, CFO

“Our joint venture with OIA has far exceeded our financial and operational expectations.”

Anna Lee Fenger, Former COO

“The operations of our outpatient imaging center had become cumbersome and the effort required to manage the center diluted our ability to focus on other higher priority areas of the hospital. OIA presents to us an ideal solution – they will assume responsibility for operating the center, while bringing to bear a deep and experienced management team. Now the hospital will be able to take a step back from our day to day involvement while still maintaining an oversight role at the center.”

Bob Guanci, Former COO

“A partnership with Outpatient Imaging Affiliates provides us immediate access to their specialized expertise in the management and marketing of outpatient diagnostic settings. Their focus on serving the specific needs of referring physicians and convenient, high quality patient care makes them a perfect match to our organization. We’re excited about our future opportunities as partners.”

Donna Staton, President

“OIA has extensive experience operating outpatient imaging center locations across the country on behalf of its hospital and academic medical center partners.”
