Monongahela Valley Hospital Designated an ACR Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
(January 3, 2014 - Carroll Township, Pa.)
Monongahela Valley Hospital has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). MVH is the only hospital in Washington County to earn this designation.
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 and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy).
Peer-review evaluations conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field determined that MVH has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
"The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence designation indicates that people who come to MVH receive the same high level of diagnostic imaging services as people who go to some of the country's most renowned health centers such as the Mayo Clinic," said Louis J. Panza Jr., president and CEO of Monongahela Valley Hospital. "At MVH, we offer a continuum of care from imaging and diagnosis through the latest advancements in therapies. And, not only are we high tech, we are high touch. Our staff strives to treat everyone as though they are their own mothers."
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.
