Canonsburg General Hospital Earns ACR Accreditation

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Canonsburg Hospital has 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). CT scanning — sometimes called CAT scanning — is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and tailor treatments for various medical conditions.
 
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.
 
“We are honored to be awarded with this three-year accreditation,” Terry Wiltrout, CEO of Canonsburg Hospital stated. “We are continually focused on offering patients the highest level of care and diagnostic testing.”
 
“The CT technologists at Canonsburg Hospital are all certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and are highly experienced and trained,” Marilyn Kovach, director of medical imaging at CGH stated. “We provide the patient with the utmost professional care for each individual’s examination.”
 
The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 34,000 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.
