Southern Ocean Medical Center Receives ACR Accreditation for Nuclear Medicine


Manahawkin, NJ - Southern Ocean Medical Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in Nuclear Medicine after a successful survey by the American College of Radiology (ACR).

“We’re so very proud of the exceptional care and procedures that take place at Southern Ocean Medical Center,” says Alicia Daniels, M.D., department chair of radiology at Southern Ocean Medical Center. “This is yet another ACR accreditation that we’ve earned, which demonstrates our commitment to quality patient care.”
The ACR is a national organization that awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. They assess the qualifications of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. The surveyors report their findings to the ACR’s Committee on Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report.

The Imaging Services department at Southern Ocean Medical Center provides a variety of services with convenient hours, including x-ray, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. Additionally, they are dedicated to the specialized health needs of women, such as digital mammography, bone density, ultrasound, and stereotactic biopsy.
