The partnership with RBMA exemplifies Ziegler’s continued focus on delivering best-in-class advisory and financing solutions for physician groups, companies and organizations across the healthcare industry. Ziegler is one of the most active healthcare advisory firms offering innovative sell-side, buy-side, recapitalization/restructuring, equity private placement and strategic partnering services.

Notable engagements include Ziegler’s role in advising Radiology Associates of Canton (OH) on a partnership with RadPartners; Radiology Imaging Consultants (IL) on a partnership with RadPartners; and Virtual Radiologic on their $500 million acquisition by MEDNAX.
“Ziegler was the ideal partner to advise Radiology Associates of Canton (RAC) because of their deep knowledge of the radiology industry and proven track record of advising other radiology practices on successful transactions. Their invaluable guidance and thoughtful approach helped ensure a successful outcome for RAC and well positioned our group for continued growth. We are thrilled to be partnered with RadPartners, an organization that shares our group’s values and mission to transform healthcare,” said Dr. Syed Zaidi, President of RAC.

Andy Colbert, a managing director in Ziegler's Corporate Finance Healthcare practice, stated, “There is a tremendous opportunity for radiology to take a leadership position in reshaping health care delivery in the evolution towards a patient-centric model. As reimbursement models evolve and technologies improve, volume-based imaging models will be phased out in favor of a system focused on superior outcomes, patient-centric care, clinical quality metrics, total cost management and shared savings across the continuum of care. The Ziegler team brings unmatched domain expertise, deep insights in the industry and competitive dynamics. We are excited to continue serving as trusted advisors to radiology physician groups as they prepare for the opportunities and challenges ahead.”
