FREDERICKSBURG, VA, JANUARY 26, 2017 – Dr. Christopher M. Meyer has been named president of Radiologic Associates of Fredericksburg (RAF), the largest provider of professional medical imaging services in the region. RAF physicians serve patients at Mary Washington Hospital, Stafford Hospital, Medical Imaging of Fredericksburg, LLC, RAF’s interventional radiology practice Virginia Interventional & Vascular Associates, and offices in Richmond and Northern Virginia.
Dr. Meyer succeeds Dr. David L. Glasser, who was president for two four-year terms, the maximum allowed under practice rules.
In his new role, Dr. Meyer is involved in alignment and integration initiatives, with programs involving area referring physicians, and with the RAF administrative team headed by CEO Ed Swager on finance matters and practice opportunities. He is also continuing his patient care duties as a board-certified, fellowship-trained diagnostic radiologist who interprets body imaging and women’s imaging.
“I am honored and humbled that the group selected me as their president,” Dr. Meyer said. “Dr. Glasser has led the practice through eight years of change and growth with integrity, vision, and strong leadership ability. I certainly have big shoes to fill. We also have a strong administrative team led by Ed Swager. I foresee continuing Dr. Glasser’s work, enhancing our working relationship with Mary Washington Healthcare, and pursuing growth opportunities inside and outside our region.”
Swager noted that Dr. Meyer is highly qualified for the new role. “Based on Dr. Meyer’s leadership with RAF and the hospital, we felt he would be an ideal choice for continuing Dr. Glasser’s great accomplishments,” he said.
A native of Richmond, Dr. Meyer received his medical degree from Medical College of Virginia in 1998. He completed his internship and radiology residency training at Emory University in Atlanta, followed by a fellowship in body imaging. Dr. Meyer joined RAF in 2004, bringing to the group expertise in body imaging, virtual colonoscopy, and radiation safety. He became a partner in 2007 and over the years has served as vice president of the practice, a member of the board of directors, chair of the operations committee, and as a member of the finance, and nomination and bylaws committees.
During his years at RAF, Dr. Meyer was also chairman of the Mary Washington Hospital department of radiology for more than eight years, and chief of diagnostic and support services for the hospital. Also, he was physician coordinator of the Image Gently Campaign, an initiative that has increased awareness of opportunities to lower radiation dose when imaging children.
He and his wife Dr. Leslie Meyer, a local obstetrician-gynecologist, have three children: Jessica, Joseph, and Allison.
