Stephens County Hospital earns a three-year term of accreditation in mammography.
The hospital received the accreditation as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology, or ACR.
According to Stephens County Hospital, the ACR is a national professional organization that provides programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
Hospital officials said that the ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. They added that it is awarded only to facilities meeting ACR Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards after a peer-review evaluation.
In addition to the ACR accreditation, Stephens County Hospital has also received a one-year term of accreditation in digital mammography by the Food and Drug Administration, or FDA.
