Day Kimball Hospital Mammography in Putnam Receives American College of Radiology Accreditation

March 11, 2009

– Day Kimball Hospital has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in mammography as the result of a recent survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

"This accreditation ensures that we offer our patients the highest quality of care in our mammography services," said Sandra Dean, Mammography and Satellite Supervisor. "Our highly skilled radiologists' and mammographers' main concern is that each and every woman is provided the highest possible standard of care."

The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualification of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment.

Nearly 5,000 mammograms were performed at Day Kimball Hospital last year and the Hospital recently passed CT state inspections on all four of the mammography machines located in all of its affiliated health centers.

Day Kimball Hospital's Diagnostic Imaging Department put the finishing touches on its technology upgrades in February of 2007 with the Fuji CR System for digital mammography. Day Kimball is also a certified Softer Mammography Provider. As a certified provider, the Hospital's Mammography Department offers patients MammoPad® breast cushions during the Mammogram exam.
