BAYONNE MEDICAL CENTER RECEIVES ACR ACCREDITATION FOR MRI SERVICES
BAYONNE, NJ - June 3, 2009 - Bayonne Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The ACR, headquartered in Reston, VA., award accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field conduct evaluations. 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.
