Southeast Georgia Health System MRI & Imaging Receives ACR Accreditation

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: March 19, 2009 – The mammography unit at Southeast Georgia Health System MRI & Imaging has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

“ACR Accreditation demonstrates our commitment to quality patient care,” says DelRia Baisden, vice president, Southeast Georgia Health System. “Patients can be assured that our mammography unit and our staff have passed the ACR’s rigorous evaluation and that they will receive the highest quality of care at MRI & Imaging.”

The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., 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.

MRI & Imaging is located at 1111 Glynco Parkway in Brunswick, and hours of operation are 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Friday. For more information, call 912-466-5620. For more information about ACR, contact Shawn Farley at 703-648-8936 or email.
