CONWAY, SC– Conway Medical Center (CMC) has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in ultrasound, at both CMC’s main campus and off-site Outpatient Diagnostic Center, as the result of an extensive review by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards, following a peer-review evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.
“Acquiring the ACR ultrasound accreditation is a great accomplishment for our team here at CMC,” says, Fred Lewis, director of radiology at CMC, “Our patients expect the highest quality of care and this designation is a testament to the dedication of our staff to meeting and exceeding their expectations each and every day.”
The imaging department at CMC is a modern, progressive department staffed by qualified professionals including nationally registered and state certified technologists, board-certified radiologists, and compassionate, caring support staff. For an appointment call 843-234-5474.
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
