Camden Campus Computed Tomography (CT) Receives Accreditation

ST. MARYS, Georgia: Nov. 30, 2011– The Computed Tomography (CT) Department at the Southeast Georgia Health System Camden Campus in St. Marys was awarded a three-year term of accreditation as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review 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 along with the quality of images taken.

“This accreditation was made possible by the hard work and dedication of our team, especially Sheila Mace, RT(R) and Dana Bellisle, RT(R)(CT), who were in charge of this accreditation project,” said Timothy P. Bryant, MBA, RT(R)(N), manager, Radiology and Cardio-Pulmonary Services, Camden Campus. “Having this accreditation provides our patients and referring physicians with a high level of confidence in our services and assures them we offer only the highest quality of care.”

The CT Department joins the Nuclear Medicine and Mammography departments at the Camden Campus that have attained ACR accreditation. The ACR is a national organization in partnership with the FDA providing accreditation that demonstrates a facility's commitment to quality patient care. The ACR provides accreditation programs for mammography, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, PET, CT and radiation oncology.
