Houston Healthcare Facilities Earn Breast Imaging Center of Excellence Designation

Houston Healthcare Facilities Earn Breast Imaging Center of Excellence Designation

Houston Healthcare is proud to announce Houston Medical Center, Pavilion Diagnostic Center and Perry Hospital have each been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation signifies that Houston Healthcare facilities provide essential breast imaging services to our community at the highest standards of the radiology profession.

By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy), and breast MRI.

“We are thrilled to have earned this designation for our mammography and breast care services at our three facilities,” shares Dr. Mindy Hartley, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Houston Healthcare. “Our staff and radiologists have worked diligently to ensure the right processes are in place in order to continue providing quality care to our patients.”

Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that these facilities have achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.
