Miami Children's Hospital Receives American College of Radiology Accreditation
(11/19/2004)

Miami Children's Hospital (MCH) has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in MRI Services as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The ACR, headquartered in Reston, Va., awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation on its practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

“We are pleased that we can offer families the confidence that comes from knowing their children are receiving care at an accredited program,” said Nolan Altman, MD, Chief of Radiology at MCH.

The ACR is a national organization serving more than 32,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology, and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

Founded in 1950, Miami Children's Hospital is the only licensed specialty hospital for children in South Florida. Ranked among the country’s best pediatric hospitals by U.S. News & World Report, Miami Children's Hospital offers medical care and services for children from birth to age 21. The 268-bed medical facility treats more than 185,000 patients each year and has expertise in all aspects of pediatric medicine.
