Aug. 18, 2015—Aurora Diagnostics has acquired two hospital-based practices of Brazos Valley Pathology that provide extensive pathology services to several hospitals in Texas. The practices, Brazos Valley Pathology, based in Bryan and College Station, and Tyler-based Trinity Pathology Associates, provide pathology services to St. Joseph Health System, College Station Medical Center, Mother Frances Health System, as well as a number of other health facilities and clinics.
The newly acquired practices will operate independently as part of Austin Pathology Associates, a similar Aurora Diagnostics practice based in Austin. In addition, the transaction includes the assets of ProMedX Billing Solutions, a billing services company for the acquired practices, as well as several other professional pathology providers. Brazos Valley Pathology has provided pathology services for the region since 1996. The company’s pathologists are board certified in anatomic and clinical pathology, with special expertise and formal training in cytopathology, nephropathology, hematopathology, breast pathology, and clinical chemistry.
