Lexington Clinic’s Richmond Regional Oncology Center and Southeastern Kentucky Cancer C enter have earned a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR). With these accreditations, all three Lexington Clinic Cancer Centers, including the John D. Cronin Cancer Center, are ACR accredited.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston,Virginia, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess 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.
“We are very pleased to have earned these accreditations recognizing all of our cancer centers as care providers of the highest standards. We have a patient-focused staff that is dedicated to compassionate, comprehensive care, and this accreditation is a great way to show patients and the community our commitment to providing the best in healthcare delivery. Best of all, patients can now enjoy exceptional care close to home,” said Andrew H. Henderson, MD, Lexington Clinic CEO.
