The Radiation Oncology program at Community Memorial Hospital has been accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for a three-year term.
Only 10 percent of the nation’s radiation oncology practices achieve this distinction.
“This accreditation confirms the high standard of radiation oncology treatment we provide at all sites served by the Medical College of Wisconsin radiation oncology practice,” said J. Frank Wilson, M.D., the Bernard and Miriam Peck Professor and Chair of Radiation Oncology at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW). Dr. Wilson is also the director of Froedtert & The Medical College Adult Clinical Cancer Services.
The MCW radiation oncology practice also serves patients at Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin academic medical center campus in Milwaukee, and CMH in Menomonee Falls, both members of the Froedtert & The Medical College Cancer Network; as well as Clement J. Zablocki VA Medical Center, Milwaukee; and St. Catherine’s Hospital, Kenosha.
The ACR review is conducted by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. During the review process, staff and equipment are evaluated to ensure they are fully qualified to provide safe, high-quality radiation therapy treatments. Receiving the accreditation means a radiation oncology facility has met the challenge of a rigorous independent review and follows nationally accepted standards of care.
