Radiation Oncology Services of CMC Receives Accreditation from the American College of Radiology

 

September 27, 2010 - Ithaca, New York – Cayuga Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

 

The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Virginia, awards accreditation to facilities that are determined to have high practice standards as a result of a peer-review evaluation. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who asses the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

 

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive healthcare services.

 

Cayuga Medical Center is a 204-bed, state-of-the art regional medical center and is affiliated with many prestigious health care organizations including Cornell University’s Weill Medical College in New York City, Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY,  the Rochester Heart Institute at Rochester General Hospital in Rochester, NY, and Mayo Medical Laboratories. For more information on services available at the medical center and its satellite campuses, please call (607) 274-4498.
