Awarded a three-year accreditation for MRI imaging by the American College of Radiology
PHOENIX (August 10, 2010) – Paradise Valley Hospital was recently awarded a three-year accreditation for its MRI technology by the American College of Radiology (ACR), a national organization with programs that focus on the practice of medical imaging and the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services. With this accreditation, Paradise Valley Hospital can continue its commitment to providing the highest level of quality care to its patients.
The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of the facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.
“We are proud to have received a three-year MRI accreditation and the recognition by such a prestigious organization,” said Craig McCoy, chief executive officer, Paradise Valley Hospital. “Our full-service outpatient diagnostic imaging center offers patients the highest quality of care utilizing the latest technology, provided by board certified radiologists and experienced staff in a comfortable environment.”
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 healthcare services.
