Harbin Clinic has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). Radiation oncology, or radiation therapy, uses carefully targeted and regulated doses of high-energy radiation to destroy cancer cells. The ACR seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety and is awarded only to facilities that meet rigorous practice guidelines and specific technical standards developed by ACR.
“Earning accreditation from ACR represents Harbin Clinic’s unwavering commitment to providing the best care in the safest manner possible to achieve optimal health outcomes,“ said Dr. Matthew Mumber, chairman of Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology. “We are very proud of this significant achievement, and I commend our talented team for continually going above and beyond to provide Complete Cancer Care℠ for our patients.”
During the accreditation process, Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology was thoroughly and carefully assessed according to ACR guidelines for patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs. The findings were then reported to the ACR Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation, which subsequently provided the practice with a comprehensive report to be used for continuous practice improvement.
