FHP Health Center Receives ACR MRI Accreditation

MRI_GreenTamuning, Guam — The FHP Health Center has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation for its magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as the result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). With this accreditation, patients covered by Medicare or Medicaid can now receive MRI services at FHP.

“We are extremely pleased and excited to obtain the ACR MRI accreditation which provides a high level of confidence for our patients and referring physicians that services offered at FHP is being performed to the highest standard,” said Corey Roberts, FHP Clinic Administrator.  “By pushing for higher requirements when it comes to medical imaging standards, this only exemplifies our continuing commitment to ensure our patients receive safe, high quality care,” continued Roberts. The ACR accreditation not only recognizes the high quality imaging services offered at FHP, but it also gives assurance that personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and programs at FHP have passed ACR’s rigorous evaluation conducted by board-certified physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the field. This adds to FHP’s ACR accreditations already received in CT and Digital Mammography.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services.

The FHP Health Center, one of Micronesia’s leading medical clinics located in the United States Territory of Guam, integrates complete and optimized healthcare under one trusted family brand. Established in 1973, FHP has blossomed to encompass twelve Centers of Medical Care on Guam and Saipan, giving its patients region-wide access to complete medical care.  These centers include Urgent Care, Pediatrics, Adult Medicine, OB/GYN, Occupational Health, Radiology, Orthopedics, Home Health, Pharmacy, a Cancer Center, as well as a Dental and Vision Center.

FHP contains a roster of highly trained, well-known and respected doctors in the community.  In addition to the exceptional, credentialed staff, the center boasts modern technology and equipment that covers the entire gamut of medical services and expertise the center provides to its patients.
