|Maury Regional Radiation Therapy Services Earn Accreditation From American College of Radiology|
COLUMBIA, Tenn.—Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). MRMC is one of only four medical centers in the state to receive this accreditation. The medical center’s cancer program also holds accreditation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
The accreditation follows a comprehensive survey of the medical center’s radiation therapy services. During the review, patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed.
The ACR is the nation’s oldest and most widely accepted radiation oncology accrediting body, with over 500 accredited sites, and 25 years of accreditation experience. The ACR seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting specific practice guidelines and technical standards developed by ACR after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
Radiation therapy services offered by MRMC are part of the medical center’s comprehensive cancer treatment services that include medical oncology and an outpatient infusion center.
