West Physics Consulting, LLC (“West Physics”), the leading national provider of integrated medical and health physics services, announced today that it has completed the purchase of Phoenix Technology Corporation (“PTC”) a highly respected regional medical and health physics company based in Woodstock, GA.
“The purchase of PTC will complement West Physics’ current installed customer base in the Southeast region, allowing us to provide enhanced services to both PTC and West Physics customers by combining the strengths and resources of the two organizations,” stated Dr. Geoffrey West, President & Chief Medical Physicist of West Physics. “The acquisition of PTC provides a major growth opportunity for us by bringing into West Physics twenty highly experienced and trained technical and administrative staff, not to mention their deep relationships with over four hundred of the finest medical facilities in Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Tennessee. For PTC customers, the stability and support of the nation’s leading medical and health physics provider will permit increased scheduling flexibility and decreased report turn-around times, while also providing access to a variety of enhanced service offerings that we have been pleased to introduce to the medical imaging industry,” Dr. West concluded.
