"The accreditation process is extensive, challenging and rigorous. It is an honor to receive this accreditation from the ACR," said Kendal Greco, chief nuclear technologist. "The accreditation is a result of the dedication to excellence and patient safety that our employees demonstrate every day."
ACR evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in their field. These evaluators assess the qualifications of personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment.
The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic-interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
