The diagnostic imaging arm of MAIN (Mid-Atlantic Imaging Network) Medical, a major network of freestanding medical imaging centers operating in the Mid-Atlantic region, has been acquired by a management and investment group. The group, which took ownership Aug. 16, is being led by MAIN's president and CEO, Anthony Geramita. Terms of the agreement have not been disclosed, but include acquisition of the five imaging centers, plus the Mobile Ultrasound Division, that the former company operated, as well as rights to the MAIN Medical name. The acquisition is a natural progression for MAIN Medical, according to Geramita, who has led the firm for the past two years. The Pittsburgh-based group plans to open more centers and develop partnerships with hospitals and other imaging providers in the region.
