The radiation oncology department at Hays Medical Center’s Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute recently received accreditation for its radiation oncology program from the American College of Radiation Oncology. The three-year accreditation, beginning in April, was granted after a rigorous survey by ACRO, which involved a review of the facility and equipment, staffing, processes, patients’ charts and a site visit by members of ACRO. After the survey was conducted, the data was reviewed, and the HaysMed Radiation Oncology program was determined to be in accordance with the standards of the American College of Radiation Oncology. ACRO strives to ensure the highest quality care for radiation therapy patients and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and integration of science and technology into clinical practice. “We are pleased to be recognized by the ACRO COURTESY PHOTO Members of Hays Medical Center’s Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute radiation oncology unit recently received national accreditation. with this accreditation,” said William Cadoret, director of the Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute. “We work hard to ensure our radia- tion therapy is the highest quality.
