CHESAPEAKE, VA, SEPT. 1, 2020 – Patients and providers in the greater Chesapeake region now have access to nationally recognized excellence in radiological services, with the introduction this summer of Dominion Radiology Associates (DRA), which brings community-based and focused radiologists together with an administrative team with a proven track record of clinical excellence and high patient and provider satisfaction.
Serving four locations within the Chesapeake region since June 1, DRA consists of more than 45 providers, including diagnostic radiologists, interventional radiologists and women’s imagers. DRA’s board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians have graduated from some of the most respected training programs in the U.S. with subspecialty training and experience in neuroradiology, musculoskeletal/body imaging, oncology, cardiac, and breast imaging.
DRA is a physician-owned group focused on bringing high-quality diagnostic imaging, interventional radiology and women’s imaging to residents of Southeastern Virginia and Northeastern North Carolina.
Working with local providers who have served the Chesapeake community for years, DRA is providing imaging services in collaboration with Chesapeake Regional Healthcare, a local, independent, community-focused healthcare organization. DRA provides imaging at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center, Chesapeake Regional Imaging’s Kingsborough and Kempsville locations and the Jennings Outpatient Center.
“We are excited about this expansion of value-added, clinical-quality service offerings within the area, as well as the opportunity to collaborate with a long-standing radiology group and a highly respected health system that has made a significant investment in the community,” said DRA Chief Executive Officer Ed Swager. “It is our goal to assure a high level of excellence in all areas of imaging services.”
DRA brings patients and referring providers access to subspecialty imaging and value-added services. Through utilization management and clinical appropriateness, DRA optimizes the cost of these services, leading to more effective care on all levels.
