The American College of Radiology, the nation’s oldest and most widely-accepted radiation oncology accrediting body, has awarded LH/UH Seidman Cancer Center their radiation oncology accreditation.

The ACR accreditation awarded to LH/UH Seidman Cancer Center means that the radiation treatments we administer meet the highest standards of quality and radiation safety. This means that:

  • Our facility has voluntarily gone through a vigorous review process to ensure that we meet or exceed ACR’s nationally accepted standards of patient care and radiation treatment, quality control procedures, patient safety, and quality assurance programs.
  • Our staff is properly qualified, through certification and continuing education, to provide your radiation oncology treatments.
  • We have the appropriate facilities and properly-maintained equipment for any radiation treatment we provide.

Radiation oncology, also known as radiation therapy, is the treatment of cancer through the careful use of high-energy radiation. Radiation oncologists are the medical specialists that use radiation to treat a patient’s cancer.

The ACR is the oldest and most widely recognized radiation oncology accrediting body in the United States. The ACR seal of accreditation is awarded to institutions meeting strict technical standards and practice guidelines, as determined by its peers (board-certified medical physicists and radiation oncologists who are recognized as experts in their fields). In addition to awarding accreditations, the ACR Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation also provides the institution with detailed reports for use in continuous practice improvement.


Fundraising efforts throughout the year help LH/UH Seidman Cancer Center continue to carry out our mission to provide world-class cancer care and oncology services to residents within driving distance of Mentor and Lake County.
