Largest Practice in Ohio Expands Relationship with Mercy Health Hospitals in Toledo
Columbus, OH (March 2, 2017) – Columbus Radiology, a Radiology Partners (RP) practice, currently serving over 65 total sites in Ohio, including 19 hospitals and eight health systems, today announced a partnership with multiple hospitals within the Mercy Health system. Fourteen radiologists will join Columbus Radiology to help serve 10 of Mercy Hospital’s, including: Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center, Mercy Health – St. Charles Hospital, Mercy Health – St. Anne Hospital, and Mercy Health – Defiance Hospital, among others.
“Partnering with the local radiologists serving Mercy Health allows us to provide the highest quality of care to patients throughout the region,” said Frank Castellano, M.D. of Columbus Radiology. “Referring physicians will now have the benefit of advanced technology, clinical collaboration and extensive infrastructure leading to a better diagnosis and improved treatment options for patients.”
The expanded relationship solidifies Columbus Radiology’s position as the largest radiology practice in Ohio, with 105 radiologists on staff, and further emphasizes the value they bring to radiology across the state. Columbus Radiology has a firm commitment to providing its radiologists with the technology, support and training needed to deliver a higher standard of care for patients. Additionally, investments in clinical programs, communication tools and collaboration with referring physicians have elevated radiology care by creating closer relationships with other physicians, which can ultimately result in better care for patients.

Theadore, Vice President, Ambulatory Services & Business Development for Mercy Health – Toledo. “Partnering with Columbus Radiology furthers our mission by providing our patients access to one of the most respected radiology groups in the country, let alone in Ohio.
