Alliance HealthCare Services, in partnership with Emory Healthcare, has opened a new diagnostic imaging facility in Buford, Georgia, US.

The partnership with Emory enables Alliance Imaging to meet its initiative of growing its diagnostic imaging services portfolio in partnership with hospitals and healthcare groups.

Under the collaboration, Alliance will provide imaging services to the patient and physician populations of Emory University Hospital Midtown and Emory Johns Creek Hospital.

Emory University Hospital Midtown chief executive officer Dane Peterson said, "We look forward to forging this new relationship with Alliance, who will provide the management, marketing and support staff to assist our health care staff."

Emory Johns Creek Hospital CEO Craig McCoy said, "This opportunity will give patients the option of choosing a facility that is closer to home for their imaging needs, while still offering Emory’s top-notch clinical staff to care for them."
