Under the partnership, Aris will deliver on-site physician coverage and management support to the 106-bed acute care community hospital serving the residents of Greater New Haven and Fairfield counties. The facility will also have 24/7 access to highly specialized radiologists through Aris’ teleradiology network.

With more than 250 radiologists who interpret an estimated 2.5 million studies annually across 300 client sites, Aris offers 24/7 access to one of the nation’s largest networks of subspecialized radiologists. The company also maintains a robust IT platform that helps increase the speed with which both attending physicians and patients receive results.

Having 24-hour access to highly skilled specialty radiologists on a digital platform helps us provide fast, accurate readings and build stronger relationships with our patients and referring physicians.”
