LAKE CITY —Stewart Memorial Community Hospital has passed the Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) inspection with no deficiencies.
MQSA became legislation in 1992. Administered by the Food and Drug Administration, it established national standards for accreditation, certification and inspection of mammography facilities in the U.S.
A news release from SMCH says, “Because of these standards, millions of women who receive mammograms in the U.S. each year can be confident they are receiving high-quality, consistent and reliable breast imaging at mammography facilities across the country.”
With a total of 73 years of experience, the five mammographers on staff at SMCH are all registered and board-certified with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. In addition, SMCH offers digital technology, and all staff have advanced training in its use. All mammograms are interpreted at Mercy Medical Center by mammography certified radiologists.
