Cancer Center at Lake Manassas is Recognized for Excellence of Care and Radiation Treatment by American College of Radiology
Date:2/15/2013

Gainesville, Virginia (PRWEB) February 15, 2013

The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas is pleased to announce the renewal of its American College of Radiology accreditation for radiation oncology services. The three-year accreditation is considered the industry gold standard, and is offered only to those cancer treatment facilities that offer the highest quality of care.

“We believe in providing our patients with the very best care and treatment technologies,” says Dr. Sanjeev Aggarwal, radiation oncologist and medical director at the Cancer Center at Lake Manassas. “We are proud to receive this accreditation because it shows we are living up to our beliefs; we are providing the best of care and treatment options.”

The ACR’s Radiation Oncology Accreditation Program reviews facilities’ personnel, equipment, treatment planning, treatment records and patient-safety policies as well as quality control and quality assessment activities. The program offers a third-party, impartial peer review and evaluation of patient care, and provides assurance of top-quality patient care.

The American College of Radiology is a national organization headquartered in Reston, Virginia. In addition to its accreditation programs, the ACR offers its members — more than 36,000 diagnostic and interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine and medical physicists — with programs relating to the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

This American College of Radiology radiation oncology accreditation is a renewal for CCLM; the Center was first accredited for radiation oncology services by the ACR in 2009. The Cancer Center at Lake Manassas is also accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.
