DULLES, VA – StoneSprings Hospital Center has been awarded accreditation in Computed Tomography (CT) as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This achievement marks the second ACR accreditation that the hospital has earned.
“The ACR golden seal of recognition is synonymous with exceptional performance and dedication by our entire team of board-certified radiologists, qualified technical staff, and management,” says Scott Cassar M.D., department chair of radiology at StoneSprings Hospital Center. “We are proud to have earned this distinction and will continue our commitment to providing excellence in diagnostic imaging and patient care.”
Patients receiving treatment or testing at an ACR-accredited imaging facility can be assured that they are receiving the best care provided by an entire team of dedicated professionals, reflecting their investment and commitment to providing exceptional medical imaging technology, patient care, and service to the community.
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, VA, awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-reviewed 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.
