KEMH Mammography Program Earns Accreditation by American College of Radiology

The Bermuda Hospitals Board (BHB) today announced that its mammography program has achieved accreditation renewal with the American College of Radiology (ACR) for the period June 2005 to June 2008. This accreditation is highly recognized across North America.

“Accreditation by the American College of Radiology inspires a high level of confidence for patients and physicians, and assures them that only the highest quality of care is being provided,” said Joan Dillas-Wright, Chief Executive Officer of the Bermuda Hospitals Board. “We commend the mammography team for their commitment to excellence in patient care.”

The King Edward VII Memorial Hospital (KEMH) mammography department performed 3024 mammograms in 2004. The department consists of four qualified, registered mammography technologists and three radiologists. The fully accredited mammography program features the latest technologies in mammography, ensuring the lowest radiation dose possible to the patient. It includes a diversified breast imaging department, consisting of diagnostic and screening mammography, breast ultrasonography, and stereotactic biopsy procedures.

Representatives from the American College of Radiology Mammography Accreditation Program commented, “We hope you proudly display your new ACR Accreditation Certificate so that it is visible to all of your patients. It signifies that your facility provides this essential service to your community at the highest standards of the radiology profession.”

This accreditation augments the BHB organizational accreditation from the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation, an independent organisation whose role is to help hospitals examine and improve the quality of care and service they provide to their clients.
