From the American College of Radiology (ACR) and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO)
Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals have 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) and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
This accreditation covers all of Jefferson's Radiation Oncology Departments, including the Bodine Center for Radiation Therapy as well as at Methodist Hospital, Riddle, Nazareth and Aria Hospitals.
The ACR-ASTRO seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety. 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.
Patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs are assessed.
