OLBH Receives Full MRI Accreditation
OLBH has been awarded a three-year accreditation in MRI as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
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. The accreditation program evaluates qualifications of personnel, equipment performance, effectiveness of quality control measures, and quality of clinical images. OLBH performed well by each measure and received the three year accreditation.
“We’re honored to receive full accreditation from the ACR,” Terri Hannon, OLBH director of Radiology Services, said. “Receiving no ACR recommendations for MRI is something to be proud of. It is great our facility and clinical staff are receiving recognition for the high quality of our MRI services from medical experts.”
