St. Mary Regional Cancer Center Earns Accreditation
Radiation oncology services receive a three-year accreditation from the American College of Radiology.
LANGHORNE, Pa., January 21, 2009 – The St. Mary Regional Cancer Center recently earned three-year accreditation from the American College of Radiology (ACR) for its radiation oncology services.
St. Mary is one of only about a dozen facilities in the state, and the only one in Bucks County, to have received this accreditation, which recognizes achievement of high practice standards.
The hospital voluntarily completed a rigorous review process conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who assessed the treatment technology and the qualifications of the staff.
“The certificate of accreditation ensures that all staff and equipment have passed the ACR’s meticulous evaluation, focusing on quality and safety, and departmental processes,” says Chuck Quinn, Cancer Center Manager. “With this accreditation, patients as well as referring physicians can be extremely confident that the highest quality of care is being provided.”
The St. Mary Regional Cancer Center offers the most advanced technology along with expert knowledge and leading-edge medicine to treat even the most complex cases. Our investment in radiation treatment includes Wide-bore Computed Tomography (CT) with tumor gating; High-Dose Rate (HDR) Brachytherapy; Highly Integrated Adaptive Radiotherapy (HI-ART) TomoTherapy; and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT).
The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists.
