Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center has received a three-year accreditation in radiation oncology from the American College of Radiology. Experts in the field review equipment, patient care and treatment, qualifications and quality control before the seal of accreditation is awarded. Its presence assures that treatment at the Mentor Cancer Center has met the highest standards of quality and radiation safety.

The honor builds on the center’s receipt in 2011 of national certification from the Quality Onocology Practice Initiative.

“We were the second in the state to attain the QOPI certification,” said Julie Moran, director of Lake Health/University Hospitals Seidman Cancer. “We were the first to achieve it in Northeast Ohio.”

That certification assures the highest quality standards for cancer care are being met by the Mentor Cancer Center, a joint venture between Lake Health and the Seidman Cancer Centers of University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University. The center is at 9485 Mentor Ave.
