Accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR)
Accredited by the
American College of Radiology (ACR)

 

The American College of Radiology awards accreditation to medical facilities that have achieved exceptional practice standards after pursuing a rigid peer-review evaluation. Accreditation levels the playing field by applying a uniform standard to each type of facility evaluated.

Both our Radiation Therapy and PET/CT Imaging Center have separately achieved 3-Year Accreditation, the highest possible level.

Radiation Therapy Services

ACR Accreditation means our facility meets or exceeds nationally accepted standards of care for the application of radiation therapy for the treatment of specific cancers. We are the only ACR accredited radiation therapy facility in southern Illinois.

Our Radiation Therapy achieved accreditation after voluntarily undergoing an on-site survey and an independent review of the practice, including an evaluation of its procedures, equipment, criteria for staff and the quality of treatment.

PET/CT Imaging Center

ACR Accreditation means our facility meets or exceeds nationally accepted standards of care for its use of positron emission tomography (PET) scans in the diagnosis, staging and monitoring of specific cancers.

Our PET/CT was the first ACR-accredited PET provider in southern Illinois. The center achieved accreditation after voluntarily undergoing an on-site survey and an independent review of the practice, including an evaluation of its procedures, equipment, criteria for staff and the quality of its scanned images.

Accreditation became a Medicare requirement in 2012

To improve quality nationwide, U.S. lawmakers enacted legislation (H.R. 6331) that requires advanced imaging and radiation therapy providers, which participate in Medicare, be accredited. This includes PET scan providers. The accreditation process took months to complete. Even then, not all providers received the ACR seal of approval. Our facilities were accredited long before being required by law.
