In 2009 The American College of Radiology (ACR) recognized Port Huron Hospital Women’s Wellness Place as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence. This designation put Women’s Wellness Place into an elite group of breast imaging centers in Michigan - and in Port Huron and the entire Thumb area - to achieve the exceptional status of ACR Center of Excellence.
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in all of the College’s voluntary, breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules, in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program.
The breast imaging services at Women’s Wellness Place are fully accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. According to officials at ACR, peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field, have determined that Women’s Wellness Place has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment and technology, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
“This recognition and designation as a center of excellence is just one example of why women in the area trust Port Huron Hospital above all others for their healthcare needs. We are proud of our long-standing comprehensive leadership in women’s services,“ says Kathy Smith, RN, director of Ambulatory and Clinic Services.
"I’m very pleased to see Women’s Wellness Place recognized for the benchmark women’s wellness center that it is,” says Michael Tawney, DO, vice president of Medical Affairs. “When Port Huron Hospital instituted digital mammography in 2007, we chose Fuji Full Field Digital Mammography technology because the images produced provide the highest quality image resolution of any full field digital mammography device. This technology along with our women’s health professionals, the medical expertise of our radiologists and the more than 350 combined years of experience among our radiological technologists, set us apart from other providers.”
