TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- AdventHealth
announced today it has signed an agreement for the purchase of all
of the assets of Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography, a leading provider
of 3D mobile mammography services to over 700 locations in the
Tampa Bay and Sarasota areas including schools, government
agencies, corporations and health care clinics. The transaction is
expected to be complete December 20,
2019, and once official, the mobile service will be part of
AdventHealth West Florida Division.
"We want to make it easy for people to take charge of their
health and live their healthiest life possible. This service allows
us to bring health care right to employees at their workplace, so
it doesn't get easier than that," said John
Johannessen, Senior Executive Officer of Non-Acute Care in
the West Florida Division. "We are excited about the opportunity to
continue building on the services that Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography
brings to the community, and to offer a full network of work to
support and follow up with those in our care."
The sale includes Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography's three specialty
buses equipped with Hologic 3D Mammography systems. The 3D
mammography system offers more clarity regardless of breast size or
density, increased comfort and more accuracy in diagnosis,
detecting subtle lesions and fine calcifications to help pinpoint
cancers early. Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography has screened over
32,000 women in the last five years.
"With this acquisition, more people in the Tampa Bay area will benefit from the
additional breast care services available from AdventHealth" said
William C. Yovic, the founder of
Tampa Bay Mobile Mammography. "We look forward to continuing the
great service with the same staff and schedules but now with the
additional resources of AdventHealth." Yovic will remain with the
company after the acquisition to help ensure a smooth transition
for employees, clients and patients.
AdventHealth will maintain the current and future schedules for
mobile mammography and plans to grow the outpatient imaging
services in the future.
The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals.
Until the transaction is complete, current ownership will remain in
place. Financial terms have not been disclosed.
