An Award-Winning Breast Health Facility
Williamson Medical Group has received the 2016 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s Best Breast Centers for the second year in a row. This is an evidence-based designation reflecting exceptional clinical performance and women’s preferences.
Williamson Medical Center has also been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology, and accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which is a subsidiary of the American College of Surgeons. Williamson Medical Center’s Imaging Center, which is adjacent to the Breast Health Center at 4601 Carothers Parkway in Franklin, provides the majority of outpatient imaging to include biopsies for patient convenience.
By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR, which is the gold standard for radiology, recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy and breast ultrasound, including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
Peer-review evaluations, conducted in each breast imaging modality by board-certified physicians who are experts in their field, have determined that WMC’s Breast Health Center has achieved high practice standards in image quality, personnel qualifications, facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
“This accreditation means we have attained the highest level of quality,” said Director of Radiology Sharon Cooke. “This is an accreditation that centers strive for because it attests we have reached the highest level of care for our patients and our market. Patients can come here knowing we have reached that pinnacle of success.”
