Mercy receives ACR accreditation in mammography

Mercy Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

Mercy recently began offering state-of-the-art digital mammography to women undergoing routine mammograms.

For more information or to schedule a mammogram, call Mercy at 218-485-5578.
