The Cabell Huntington Hospital Radiology Department has again been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in computed tomography (CT) as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This is the ninth year in a row the department has received this honor.
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 Parameters and Technical Standards after 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 that can be used for continuous practice improvement.
“We are extremely proud of our entire team for the hard work they put in every day focusing on excellence,” said Nancy Godby, MS-MHA, MA, RT(R)(M) ARRT, CHC, director of Radiology at Cabell Huntington Hospital.
Cabell Huntington Hospital's Radiology Department offers a complete range of imaging procedures to diagnose and treat illness and injury. The department is fully staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by an experienced, professional and caring staff that focuses on delivering quality care to patients and quality service to physicians.
The ACR, founded in 1924, is a professional medical society dedicated to serving patients and society by empowering radiology professionals to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care. The College serves more than 37,000 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.
