We believe this acquisition represents a significant milestone in Digirads history, and should generate considerable value for our customers and our shareholders and enhanced opportunities for the employees of both companies, commented Matt Molchan, Digirads President and CEO. The integration of DMS Health and Digirad will enable the combined company to expand its range of customers serviced as well as provide significant geographical and service level diversification. DMS Health is an ideal strategic fit for us and our commitment to providing healthcare solutions on an as needed, when needed, and where needed basis.
continued, DMS Health
has a significant presence in the upper Midwest, a region that is currently absent in our Diagnostic Services business map, and specializes in the provision of mobile MRI, CT, and PET/CT imaging, all modalities that we do not currently offer. Further, DMS Health
has a long standing partnership with Philips Healthcare North America equipment sales and service. These are just a few of the numerous synergistic and diversification opportunities this acquisition provides to Digirad. We believe the new, combined Company will be much stronger than either company would be on its own.
