Fairfield Medical Center in Ohio Buys Imaging Center for $800k
Fairfield Medical Center in Lancaster, Ohio, has purchased River View Imaging Center from Columbus-based Mount Carmel Health System for a little more than $800,000, according to a Lancaster Eagle-Gazette report. The center, which includes an outpatient laboratory and radiology services, was renamed Fairfield Medical Diagnostic Services at River View. For the past year, FMC contracted with the imaging center for lab work and imaging tests. The purchase is the latest in a string of acquisitions by FMC. In 2011, FMC acquired River View Surgery Center for $8.5 million, which is located in the same building as the imaging center, and in the same year, also purchased Fairfield Diagnostic Imaging for $1 million.
