American College of Radiology Accreditation
Lakeland Health was 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)
. The accreditation includes CT services offered at the Center for Outpatient Services, St. Joseph
; Lakeland Hospital, Niles
; Lakeland Hospital, Watervliet
; and Lakeland Medical Center, St. Joseph
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 Guidelines 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 they can use for continuous practice improvement.
