Windham Hospital Radiology Department and Center for Sleep Medicine Earn Accreditation Renewals
Windham Hospital’s Radiology Department and Center for Sleep Medicine have received national accreditation renewals for continued excellence and high practice standards.
The hospital’s Radiology Department has been awarded a three-year accreditation from the American College of Radiology (ACR) for ultrasound including general ultrasound, obstetrical, gynecological, vascular, breast and ultrasound guided breast biopsies. The hospital’s MRI services have also earned a three-year accreditation from ACR.
In addition, the Windham Hospital Center for Sleep Medicine has received re-accreditation for the fourth time from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine reflecting its commitment to ensuring sleep disorder patients receive the highest quality of care. Using the latest technology to diagnose and treat sleep-related breathing disorders, the hospital’s Center for Sleep Medicine is the first in eastern Connecticut to win this distinction.
“These accreditations are a testament to these programs and the hospital’s adherence to a high standard of quality and excellence,” said Cary Trantalis, the hospital’s Vice President of Operations. “Ensuring that our patients have access to the best care and latest technology right in their community truly represents the next generation of community care.”
Windham Hospital, founded in 1933, is a non-profit, acute-care community hospital serving 19 eastern Connecticut towns. It has 130 beds, conducts nearly 4,000 surgeries annually, and its emergency department has been ranked among the top 1 percent of hospitals nationwide for patient satisfaction.
