Centura Health Envision Radiology Acquires Four Imaging Centers in Colorado

(ENGLEWOOD, COLO.) Centura Health Envision Radiology (CHER), a joint venture formed in 2006 between Centura Health and Envision Radiology, recently acquired four Advanced Medical Imaging (AMI) free-standing outpatient imaging centers, which contract with Colorado Imaging Associates (CIA). CHER, doing business as Health Images, is committed to maintaining the high-value radiology services CIA has provided to ensure consumers needs continue to be met. This acquisition increases the access to convenient, person-centered and affordable imaging care by expanding the Health Images network to 12 locations in Boulder and Metro Denver.

CIA, a group of 24 diagnostic radiologists, has provided inpatient and outpatient radiology services to Centura Health hospitals in north Denver, physician groups and other health care organizations since the 1970s. The acquisition only includes the four AMI free-standing imaging centers, and the ownership changed to Health Images, effective Feb. 2. By joining the Health Images network, these former AMI sites are expanding their access to best practices in imaging and additional resources and services.

The physicians of CIA will continue to interpret images at these four outpatient imaging centers and former AMI staff, including technologists, receptionists and schedulers, will continue to provide exceptional service as employees of Health Images. The addresses of the new Health Images sites are as follows:

  • Denver: 2490 W. 26th Avenue, Suite 120A, Denver 80211
  • Golden, Colo.: 660 Golden Ridge Road, Suite 120, Golden, 80401
  • Louisville, Colo.: 972 Dillon Road, Louisville, 80027
  • Thornton, Colo.: 9005 Grant Street, Suite 400, Thornton, 80229
