Penn State Health announces new community radiology team, with former Tristan Radiology Specialists physicians as inaugural members

Twelve radiologists formerly of Tristan Radiology Specialists will become part of Penn State Health Medical Group on Jan. 1. The radiologists will form the foundation of Penn State Health’s new community radiology team, providing expert diagnostic imaging services across the system’s growing community network—including dedicated service at the new Penn State Health Medical Group – Lime Spring Outpatient Center on Noll Drive in Lancaster.

This partnership gives the former Tristan radiologists the flexibility needed to continue to provide the outstanding, community-based diagnostic services their patients have come to expect. Their expertise will provide support for the comprehensive primary and specialty care services offered at Penn State Health outpatient practices from the West Shore in Cumberland County to Hershey, Lancaster and throughout the region.

“Our team of radiologists have a long history of providing fast, convenient, high-quality imaging services to help doctors and other clinical partners make diagnostic decisions on patient cases,” said Dr. Mark R. Labuski, current Tristan president. “We look forward to gaining the advantages of being part of a health system that is anchored by a university-based teaching and research hospital, while retaining the ability to provide the patient-focused services we are known for. We believe joining Penn State Health will only enhance our ability to remain at the forefront of diagnostic medicine in this region of Pennsylvania.”

The board-certified radiologists joining Penn State Health served as the area’s leading provider of diagnostic imaging services for more than 40 years, previously staffing offices in Harrisburg, Linglestown, Hershey and Camp Hill. As part of their employment with Penn State Health, the group will provide diagnostic services at a number of Medical Group sites across the region. They will also continue staffing a Harrisburg facility, from which they will provide radiology read services to Penn State Health providers and other independent community providers.

“We are thrilled that the imaging experts previously part of Tristan decided to pair their stellar reputation in the community we serve with Penn State Health’s commitment to ensuring those in our region have access to specialized care and treatment options as close to home as possible,” said Dr. Bill Bird, senior vice president for Penn State Health Medical Group. “Together, we will have an enhanced ability to provide radiology services to practices and hospitals across the region that need them.”
