CBS EXPANDING ITS MEDICAL COMMUNCATIONS BUSINESS
CBS EXPANDING ITS MEDICAL COMMUNCATIONS BUSINESS with the acquisition of TransMedica, a closely-held firm that produces medical symposia, monograph series, video-cassette series, films and audiovisual products. Much of TransMedica's medical communications is done through "MDTV," a natl. program service for MDs established in 1983, which is carried by many cable systems, by Chicago "superstation" WGN and by local UHF and VHF stations "in each of the top 50 Nielson markets," CBS said. The addition of TransMedica complements CBS' W. B. Saunders subsidiary, which publishes reference works for the medical, dental and veterinary professions, textbooks and related educational materials. The acquisition "broadens our strength in the growing market for medical information for health care professionals," CBS said. TransMedica will operate as a separate unit of CBS Educational and Professional Publishing, a division of CBS/Publishing Group. Its founders will continue to manage the firm: George Rohr will be president of the new unit and Anne Holmes will be Director of Operations.
