WAYNESBORO, Pa. – Waynesboro Hospital’s computed tomography services (CT Scan) was recently awarded an accreditation as a result of a survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

A CT scan provides physicians with a highly detailed image from inside the body using a special x-ray and high-tech computer.

John Schaffer, administrative director of diagnostic imaging at Waynesboro Hospital, thanked the hospital’s DI team for their commitment to providing patient’s with excellent care in a safe and comforting environment.

“Being awarded this accreditation assures patients that every time they come in for a test, they are receiving the high quality care they have come to expect at Waynesboro Hospital,” he said.

As part of the four to six month process to achieve ACR accreditation, board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field conducted evaluations and assessed the qualifications of the personnel and the quality of facility equipment.
