Hays, KS (Jan 30, 2015) – The Radiation Oncology department at HaysMed’s Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute recently received accreditation for its radiation oncology program from the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO).
This 3-year accreditation, beginning in April, was granted after a rigorous survey by ACRO, which involved a review of the facility and equipment, staffing, processes, patients’ charts and a site visit by members of ACRO. After the survey was conducted, the data was reviewed, and the HaysMed Radiation Oncology program was determined to be in accordance with the standards of the American College of Radiation Oncology.
ACRO strives to ensure the highest quality care for radiation therapy patients and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and integration of science and technology into clinical practice.
“We are pleased to be recognized by the ACRO with this accreditation,” said William Cadoret, Director of the Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute. “We work hard to ensure our radiation therapy is the highest quality. Our physicians and staff are highly educated and trained, and we continue to invest in our facility and equipment, such as our new SBRT linear accelerator and advanced technology like Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). The ACRO accreditation verifies that our program provides high quality radiation therapy to the people in Western Kansas.”
