Our History

Our Story

More than 35 years of essential solutions and exceptional care.

The story of Alliance HealthCare Services begins with our roots in radiology in the early 1980’s. With a background in mobile medical services, Alliance was an early pioneer in transforming the diagnostic imaging industry by increasing the accessibility and availability of advanced imaging services to our hospital partners.

With the mission to transform healthcare services and innovate across the continuum, Alliance welcomed the addition of oncology services in the early 2000s, while also incrementally adding to our fixed-site, outpatient imaging platform. Holding a strong reputation as a trusted partner of over 1,100 hospitals and systems nationwide, in 2015 we added interventional pain management services to our expanding footprint. In 2018, we brought our expertise international.

At present, and with more than 35 years of experience, we have emerged as a global company. Alliance has a presence in approximately 47 states and the recent expansion to Asia highlights our spirit of progress and growth as a defining characteristic in our story to-date.
