Carilion Clinic, Roanoke, Va., has proposed selling an imaging center to Lake Forest, Calif.-based InSight Health Corp., in order to satisfy a Federal Trade Commission agreement resolving an antitrust challenge.
Carilion hopes to sell imaging center to InSight
Carilion Clinic acquired the Center for Advanced Imaging in 2008 along with the mutually owned Center for Surgical Excellence. A year later the FTC hit the seven-hospital system with an administrative complaint alleging the acquisitions would dampen competition for outpatient imaging and surgery in and around Roanoke.
To resolve the matter, Carilion agreed to sell both centers to buyers approved by the FTC. InSight Health Corp. owns imaging centers in 11 states, including three in Virginia. The FTC will accept comments on the transaction through June 21.
In March the commission approved the sale of the surgery center to a group of investors formed by a Roanoke nephrology group.
