Arkansas Urology earns accreditation for best practices

LITTLE ROCK (July 2, 2015) – The Arkansas Prostate Cancer Center (APCC) of Arkansas Urology has received a three-year accreditation for radiation oncology from the American College of Radiology (ACR).

APCC features state-of-the-art radiological technology specifically to treat prostate cancer. The center is known for its dedicated specialists who tailor holistic treatment to the needs of the individual. Medical professionals at the center work with the patient to deliver highly-localized treatment via intensity- modulated radiation therapy to the tumor while minimizing the damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

“We pride ourselves in providing each patient with the highest quality care possible,” said E. Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology. “ACR accreditation means that our systems and processes meet stringent evaluations. This is a reflection of our continued dedication to upholding our practice standards.”

With more than 600 accredited sites and 27 years of experience, ACR is the nation’s oldest and most widely accepted radiation oncology accrediting body. Accreditations are only awarded after an extensive peer-review evaluation conducted by board-certified radiologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Areas such as patient care and treatment, adequacy of facility equipment and quality control procedures are assessed during these ACR evaluations. All findings are reported to the practice in a comprehensive report that includes any recommendations for improvement.
