Mercy Cancer Center Radiation
Oncology has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation
oncology as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology.
The ACR 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 after a peer-review
evaluation by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who
are experts in the field. The center is currently the only Iowa-based radiation
oncology practice to have submitted to this rigorous practice evaluation and
been granted unconditional accreditation, Mercy officials said in a release.
