UNM CRTC Granted Radiation Oncology Accreditation

May 5, 2008 Contact: Leann Holt, Marketing Officer, 505/272-2162 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ALBUQUERQUE , NM – The American College of Radiology (ACR) has granted a three-year accreditation to the UNM Cancer Center Radiation Oncology Department. This is a distinction only 10 percent of radiation oncology departments across the nation have achieved. In their extensive review conducted in February, the ACR called UNM Cancer Center’s radiation oncology services “an exemplary practice.” “We are very proud of our faculty and staff who contribute to the outstanding patient care and clinical trials offered in our Radiation Oncology Department,” says Dr. Cheryl Willman, director and CEO of the UNM Cancer Center. “This recognition further affirms that we are providing world-class cancer care, right here in New Mexico.” To become accredited, radiation oncology departments must meet rigorous nationally accepted standards of care. ACR’s peer-reviewed evaluation of the UNM Cancer Center’s radiation oncology practice included assessments of how radiation therapy is delivered and documented, quality control and follow-up care.
