The Center for Radiation Therapy of Beverly Hills, a cancer treatment center serving cancer patients in the Los Angeles area, has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology.
The certification was as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).
Patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed in the review process.
The findings are reported to the ACR-ASTRO Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report it can use for continuous practice improvement.
The Center for Radiation Therapy of Beverly Hills, a part of the Tower Hematology Oncology Medical Group, voluntarily underwent the rigorous review process to ensure the practice meets nationally accepted standards of care as determined by ACR.
