King’s Daughters Medical Center is proud to be accredited by the
American College of Radiology (ACR). Accreditation is voluntary in Kentucky
and involves the review of the physicians’, technologists’
and sonographers’ educational achievements, equipment maintenance
and quality control, record keeping and department policies and procedures.
We believe the participation in voluntary accreditation ensures that King’s
Daughters Medical Center is current with the latest technologies and clinical
practices in medical imaging. This allows us to achieve a higher standard
of quality assurance and patient care that translates into our goal of
world class care in our communities.
