Poulsbo, WA (March 27, 2013) — Today Peninsula Cancer Center was awarded a three-year accreditation in radiation oncology as a result of a recent review by the American College of Radiology (ACR). After passing this stringent evaluation, Peninsula Cancer Center received the ACR seal of approval for displaying the highest level of quality care and patient safety.

Facilities are evaluated in the fields of patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures and quality assurance programs.
