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
Members of Hays Medical Center’s Dreiling/Schmidt Cancer Institute radiation oncology unit recently received national
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. Our physicians and
staff are highly educated and
trained, and we continue
to invest in our facility and
equipment, such as our new
SBRT linear accelerator and
advanced technology like
Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy. The ACRO
accreditation verifies that
our program provides high
quality radiation therapy
