Your health, your choice


This spring, Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology was once again granted the prestigious three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology by the American College of Radiology (ACR). This accreditation serves as a testament to the practice’s commitment to delivering high-quality patient care, exceptional standards in radiation oncology, and maintaining excellence in all aspects of its operations.

ACR Accreditation is a rigorous process that evaluates different facets of a medical practice, ensuring dedication to the guidelines set forth by the ACR. To achieve this recognition, Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology underwent a thorough assessment of its radiation oncology staff, equipment and procedures.

Among accreditation requirements, Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology diligently performed all quality control tests as established by ACR, demonstrating its commitment to upholding the highest standards of safety and efficacy while also ensuring that each patient receives complete care tailored to their unique needs. The practice also implements continuous quality improvement measures, including peer review, chart rounds and patient satisfaction surveys.

Radiation Oncologists Dr. J.C. Abdou and Dr. Matthew Mumber share, “The entire staff of Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology is dedicated to being a loving, caring and quality center meeting the needs of patients, families and staff. This accreditation offers validation of hard work towards those goals.”

The ACR is the nation’s oldest and most widely accepted radiation oncology accrediting body, with over 700 accredited sites, and 30 years of accreditation experience. The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting specific requirements based on Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards developed by ACR after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The findings are reported back to the facility and provides the practice with a comprehensive report they can use for continuous practice improvement.

The ACR Accreditation serves as a symbol of Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology’s dedication to patient-centered care in northwest Georgia. For more information about Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology, visit www.harbinclinic.com.
