626 Holdings, LLC, a Delray Beach, Fla.-based healthcare technology management company, has acquired Soquel, Calif.-based California Radiographics, Inc. (CRI). To 626 CEO Philip Revien, it’s an acquisition with major implications for the company.
“CRI could not be a better fit,” he says. “From a culture standpoint, a modality strengthening, a geographic expansion, and a listening to our customer’s needs, CRI hits on all objectives. We are very excited about our future with CRI.”
Michael Fischer, president of 626, concurs, stating: “The core question Phil and I continue to ask ourselves is: Is this the best move for our customer? If the answer is ‘yes,’ and it will increase our value to our customers and their patients, we have our answer.”
Since 1977, CRI has served as an OEM and third-party provider of x-ray devices throughout most of California. From technical support with parts identification, to new and used equipment sales, service, installation and deinstallation, CRI delivers an end-to-end solution for medical x-ray to multiple channels, according to 626 officials.
“CRI and 626 have a lot in common,” says CRI General Manager Roger Buttacavoli. “Both are family businesses, founded as a high-quality, agile, cost advantageous, solutions for OEM and aftermarket service and support for our varied customer base. We have been and will remain dedicated to our employees, customers and their patients.”
