Paratus Healthcare Partners Serves as the Exclusive Financial Advisor to Gulf Imaging Associates, P.A.

Paratus Healthcare Partners, LLC, is pleased to have served as the exclusive financial advisor to Gulf Imaging Associates, P.A. on the acquisition of their medical practice and affiliated imaging center, Scarsdale Imaging, to Radiology Partners. The transaction was led by Scott Seberg, Principal and Co-Founder of Paratus.

Gulf Imaging Associates (GIA) located in Houston, TX, and has long served as the exclusive diagnostic and interventional radiology services provider to Bayshore Medical Center and other medical facilities in the south metro Houston market.

On joining RP, Dr. Gerhard Wittich, President of GIA, stated, “We chose Radiology Partners because we recognize them as the largest radiology group in the city of Houston, and we connected with their mission of transforming the field of radiology.  They (RP) have a strong corporate connection to HCA, and their single-specialty focus on radiology, powered by their investments in clinical innovation will further equip us to better serve our patients and referring physicians.”

On partnering with Paratus as their exclusive financial advisor, Dr. Wittich continued, “We simply would not have been able to recognize the value and opportunity to align with a national organization such as RP without the continued guidance, support, and expertise of Paratus.”

Scott Seberg, Co-Founder of Paratus Healthcare Partners added, “It was a true pleasure to have worked with the physician shareholders of GIA and be able to advise them in every phase of the complex decision-making process associated with choosing to align with a national practice. For us, each deal is unique, but the reward of helping our clients achieve their desired outcome is always the same.”
