Banner Churchill Community Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging Department receives Certificate of
FALLON, Nev. (Dec. 22, 2011) – In November, Banner Churchill Community Hospital’s Diagnostic Imaging department was awarded a Certificate of Recognition from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology as a recognized clinical education setting for the radiography program sponsored by Great Basin College.
“We received this recognition not only due to the excellent job done by Paul Connolly, our clinical instructor, but our entire imaging staff” said Dee Towne, Medical Imaging senior manager, “we have
a very dedicated team of professionals and I am proud of all we have accomplished.”
The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) provided standards for an accredited educational program in radiography that are designed to promote academic
excellence, patient safety, and quality health care.
The standards require a program to articulate its purposes; to demonstrate that it has adequate human, physical, and financial resources effectively organized for the accomplishment of its purposes; to document its effectiveness in accomplishing these purposes; and to provide assurance that it can continue to meet accreditation standards.
The JRCERT accreditation process offers a means of providing assurance to the public that a program meets specific quality standards. The process helps to maintain program quality and stimulates program improvement through program assessment.
