Date:6/11/2012

LITTLE ROCK, Ark., June 11, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center, a partnership between AKSM/Oncology and Arkansas Urology, has earned the high honor of a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology.

The ACR-ASTRO seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety, and is the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO). It is awarded only to facilities meeting specific Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards developed by ACR and ASTRO after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

"Delivering the highest quality of care has always been a priority for the urologists within Arkansas Urology," said Jack Wang, MD. "This accreditation is not required, but we were determined to undergo this vigorous review to assure we delivered the highest quality of care. We firmly believe being recognized with such distinction demonstrates our commitment to quality and excellence, not only to our patients, but to the greater community as well."

During the Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center's review and on-site survey, patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs were assessed. The Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center received an unqualified recommendation which means there were no deficiencies that needed improvement.
