McLaren Fenton brings cancer screenings closer to home

Archive, May, Month

Since opening in March 2020, McLaren Fenton’s commitment to the community was to continue to add providers and services for patients. A recent American College of Radiology (ACR) successful review process is the latest reason for celebrating this pledge. Two important cancer screenings are available at the Owen Road location and both have received ACR accreditation.

McLaren Fenton is now an ACR designated lung cancer screening center and mammography accredited facility. To achieve the ACR Gold Standard of Accreditation, the facility's personnel qualifications, equipment requirements, quality assurance, and quality control procedures have gone through a rigorous review process and have met specific qualifications. It's important for patients to know that every aspect of the ACR accreditation process is overseen by board-certified, expert radiologists and medical physicists in advanced diagnostic imaging.

“The McLaren Fenton facility voluntarily went through the vigorous ACR review process to ensure that it meets nationally accepted standards of care,” said Adam Michaud, Director Business Development for McLaren Flint. “Patients expect high-quality care and this accreditation represents the hard work and commitment of the McLaren Fenton imaging staff.”

McLaren Fenton has much to offer to the greater Fenton community and has plans to continue to grow in the future.
