Southeast Georgia Health System MRI & Imaging Receives ACR Reaccreditation

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: April 12, 2012 – The MRI unit at Southeast Georgia Health System MRI & Imaging has been awarded a three-year term of reaccreditation as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR). All of the Health System’s MRI units are ACR accredited.

“ACR Accreditation demonstrates our commitment to quality patient care,” says DelRia Baisden, vice president, Southeast Georgia Health System. “Patients can be assured that our MRI 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.
