Tammy Walker Cancer Center earns national accreditation for radiation oncology

2009 - The Tammy Walker Cancer Center at Salina Regional Health Center has been awarded a full, three-year accreditation from the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO) for its clinical practice standards and care given to patients undergoing radiation treatment. The radiation oncology program at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center is the only one in Kansas to hold this honor.

After a thorough independent survey and onsite inspection by board certified radiation oncologists and radiation physicists from the ACRO'S Practice Accreditation Program, their findings determined that the facility, equipment, policies, procedures, staff and clinical treatment methods given to patients meet and exceed national standards for radiation oncology.

"This validates the quality of care we've always worked hard to provide our patients," said Claudia Perez-Tomayo, M.D., medical director for the program. "An ACRO accreditation makes it very plain to consumers that safe, appropriate care is available at the Tammy Walker Cancer Center and raises the bar for radiation oncology practice in the region."
