Mid-State Health Imaging Center Earns ACR Accreditation

Nov 29, 2021 | News

Mid-State Health’s Imaging Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Ultrasound – General, Gynecological, and Vascular, as a result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR) – the gold standard practice in Medical Imaging.

The ACR gold seal of accreditation represents the highest level of image quality and patient safety. It is awarded only to facilities meeting strict ACR Practice Parameters and Technical Standards after an evaluation by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. Image quality, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs are assessed. The Mid-State Imaging Center passed each category with no deficiencies.

Mid-State offers onsite x-ray and ultrasound in its Plymouth Office, as well as ultrasound services in its Bristol Location. Having an in-house imaging center has allowed Mid-State to strengthen its integrated model of care and its commitment to meeting the needs of the whole person.

Imaging Center Manager, Mark Cartier says “Having a high-quality in-house Imaging Center has become an integral part of our care model. Providers can bring their patients just down the hallway to get their x-rays, instead of sending them to the hospital, which would create another bill and extra stop for the patient.”

Mid-State Chief Executive Officer Dr. Robert MacLeod says, “It’s about patient care, patient safety, and affordable access. We strive to provide the highest quality of care to patients, at the most affordable cost. This accreditation is yet another way to show our community our commitment to this.”

Mid-State would like to commend Mark, Amanda, Wendy, and the Imaging Center staff for maintaining superior quality and safety in their work.

Mid-State Health Center has announced that its newest primary care office in Lincoln, New Hampshire is now open. The clinic, located at 6 South Mountain Drive will provide top-notch, convenient, and affordable primary care options to the local area.

“We are overjoyed to open our new primary care site in Lincoln and expand our services in the area. This new clinic affords us the opportunity to provide Mid-State’s high-quality primary care services in an area that has, in the past, had limited healthcare services,” said Robert MacLeod, Chief Executive Officer at Mid-State Health Center.

Mid-State Lincoln is accepting patients of all ages and will offer primary care services such as physical examinations, immunizations, and diagnoses and treatment of illness and injuries. The clinic also offers care coordination with other healthcare providers, prescribing medication, and management of chronic conditions, providing a healthcare home model for its patients.
