PITTSBURGH, July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Foundation Radiology Group (FRG), the premier provider of diagnostic imaging professional services, headquartered in Pittsburgh, is pleased to announce its exclusive imaging services contract with Wayne Memorial Hospital, located in Honesdale, PA.

Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH), a 98-bed community hospital, is part of Wayne Memorial Health System (WMHS). WMHS serves patients in the Northeastern Pennsylvania region, including Wayne and Pike Counties, as well as Sullivan County, New York.

"Our partnership with Foundation Radiology Group will allow us to extend the level of radiological service that we can provide to our clients," said David Hoff, Executive Director, Wayne Memorial Hospital. Hoff continued, "Improving patient care is our top priority at WMH, and we are confident that our contract with FRG will be key in reaching our patient service goals."

"The FRG solution is a perfect fit for WMH at this time," said Dr. Samuel Choi, Medical Director, WMH. Dr. Choi continued, "With FRG's subspecialty expertise and timely read turnaround times, we become more well-rounded as a practice, and that is a tremendous benefit to our patients."

FRG's board-certified radiologists are available 24/7, providing readings in neuroradiology, mammography, cardiac CT, brain perfusion, vascular ultrasound and OB/GYN ultrasound, as well as musculoskeletal, interventional, pediatric, and general radiology. The FRG model allows suburban and community healthcare institutions and outpatient centers access to subspecialty services that they may otherwise not have access to, thus providing a broader service base for those institutions.

"At FRG, we provide cost-effective radiology solutions that help our clients extend the level of care that they can provide to their patients," said Dr. Brandon Chan, CEO, Foundation Radiology Group. "We're proud to help WMH reach their goals, and to add them to our existing client network."
