When Clark Regional Medical Center's Diagnostic Center for women opened in February it was touted as one of the finest state-of-the-art facilities available anywhere.
In the last six months, those claims have proven to be right on the money as the center has provided services to local women, that at one time, could only be found in larger metropolitan hospitals.
The quality of service the center has provided gained statewide recognition earlier this month when it became one of six centers, of the 163 Breast Centers in Kentucky, to be designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
"Being recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence is a significant achievement, not only locally, but also state-wide and nationally," said Dr. Ben McQuade, Clark Regional radiologist. " This is something that everyone who supports Clark Regional should be very excited about."
