BAB Radiology Merges with Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology

On Tuesday, July 29th, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, the largest private radiology practice on Long Island, NY, announced its acquisition of BAB Radiology, a Suffolk County-based radiology group with five facilities located in Amityville, Bay Shore, Commack, Hauppauge and Shirley.

The agreement brings together two long-standing radiology groups who have been serving the Long Island community for over 50 years, and expands Zwanger-Pesiri’s reach in providing easier access to the most advanced radiological services in the industry today. With the additional locations, Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology now has 17 practicing offices spanning Long Island from Elmont in Nassau County to Shirley in Suffolk County, with continued plans for growth in the near future.
“These new locations not only increase the availability of the most cutting-edge technology and patient-centric care to more people, but also provides Zwanger-Pesiri with additional opportunities to give back to the communities,” said Chief Executive Officer of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, Dr. Steven L. Mendelsohn.

“The economic growth of Long Island is a critical factor to the success of Zwanger-Pesiri. Over the years we have employed hundreds of residents of Long Island, and with the addition of BAB’s employees and radiologists, our staff numbers have grown from over 700 to nearly 900 members,” said Daniel VanVorst, Director of Human Resources of Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology.

This September, Zwanger-Pesiri will open its 18th location in Lynbrook, NY and will be the first and only private radiology facility in the United States to have an MRI/PET (Magnetic Resonance Imaging/Positron Emission Tomography) scanner — the only FDA-approved device that has the ability to perform both an MRI and PET scan simultaneously to better detect, characterize and treat oncologic, neurologic and cardiac diseases.

Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology High School Essay Contest Winners

This year marked the first annual Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology High School Essay Contest where we asked students to tell us either how radiology helped them and their family, whether or not they saw technology advancing radiology, or how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act impacted the field of radiology.  ZPR awarded $1,000 dollar scholarships to two worthy high school students in the community.  Our two winners, Emily and Jonathan, not only wrote outstanding essays, but both remained active in their communities while maintaining a GPA of 85 or higher. Emily (from Shoreham) wrote about how radiology affected her and her family,  and will continue her education next year as a freshman at Quinnipiac University.  Jonathan (from Mt. Sinai) wrote about the advances in technology, and will be starting at Duke University this fall.  We wish them the best of luck for their bright futures!
