Center for Diagnostic Imaging Expands to Salt Lake City

MINNEAPOLIS, Nov. 17, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Center for Diagnostic Imaging (CDI), one of the nation’s leading outpatient based imaging providers, has announced the acquisition of two established advanced medical imaging groups in Salt Lake City, Utah – Open Imaging and U.S. MRI – creating a combined network of eight outpatient imaging centers serving the Utah market.

“We’ve been very active in the market looking for attractive, strategic growth opportunities, and we’re excited to be entering the fast-growing Salt Lake City market with the acquisition of two first-rate organizations,” said Rick Long, CDI’s president and chief executive officer. “Open Imaging and U.S. MRI have a long history in Utah, and both are a natural fit for CDI with their shared commitment to quality, value, access and service excellence.

Open Imaging, with three locations, has been serving Utah for thirty years – providing patients and families throughout the Intermountain West with state-of-the-art MRI, CT and X-ray services. Open Imaging was founded on the goal of improving accessibility and quality of patient care.
