InSight Health Services (Lake Forest, California) reported that its subsidiary, InSight Health, has received from the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) the Gold Seal Of Approval for its mobile diagnostic imaging, demonstrating compliance with JCAHO's national standards for healthcare quality and safety.
Michael Cannizzaro, InSight's chairman, president and CEO, said, "We sought accreditation for all our mobile diagnostic imaging units after our acquisition in August 2003 of the mobile operations of CDL Medical Technologies Inc. The mobile operations of CDL were JCAHO accredited and we wanted to demonstrate our commitment to the highest quality of services to the patients, hospitals, and physicians we serve."
The accreditation excludes the fixed-site diagnostic imaging centers InSight operates throughout the nation, although one of its fixed-site diagnostic imaging centers, Chattanooga Outpatient Center (Chattanooga, Tennessee), is JCAHO accredited.
InSight provides diagnostic imaging and information, treatment and related management services in 36 states.
