Park Ridge Health's imaging center has earned the American College of Radiology Accreditation for Mammography, meeting the criteria required for this three-year accreditation.
This center brings convenient access to diagnostic imaging for people throughout Hendersonville and the surrounding communities including Edneyville, Dana, Upward and Fruitland.
"The goal is to provide low-cost, high-value diagnostic care to everyone in a location close to where they live," said Todd Guffey, Park Ridge Health director of diagnostic imaging. "Achieving this accreditation shows we are succeeding in meeting this goal by providing high-quality care to our patients."
The Park Ridge Health Imaging Center provides mammography and ultrasound by appointment, as well as, walk-in access to X-rays.
The location of the Park Ridge Health Imaging Center provides direct access for people receiving care through Blue Ridge Health Services. It also serves as the imaging provider for Shriner's Hospital for Children, which provides a bi-monthly clinic for families in its care who live in Western North Carolina.
"The accreditation of mammography at the Imaging Center strengthens Park Ridge Health's commitment to providing comprehensive breast health care," said Jimm Bunch, Park Ridge Health president and CEO.
