Sutter buys Radiological Associates
Sacramento Bee

Sutter Health is buying Radiological Associates of Sacramento in a union of two regional health-care giants that went through a nasty breakup three years ago.

Under an agreement that takes effect Feb. 1, Sutter Medical Foundation said Tuesday it will take control of RAS’ radiation oncology and diagnostic imaging services. Nearly 800 RAS employees, including the 60 doctors who own the radiology business, will go to work for the Sutter affiliate, Sutter Medical Group. The RAS name will give way to the Sutter brand.
