USC Verdugo Hills Hospital Breast Healthcare Center Achieves Accreditation Through the American College of Radiology

The USC Verdugo Hills Hospital (USC-VHH) Breast Healthcare Center has achieved accreditation through the American College of Radiology (ACR) as an ACR designated comprehensive breast imaging center. This accreditation demonstrates that the hospital’s mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging for breast are all fully accredited by the ACR.

“Patients can have peace of mind and feel confident in the results they receive after their screening or diagnostic testing,” said Michelle Sullivan, associate administrator of ancillary services at USC-VHH. “Our patients deserve the best care, and that is why it was important for us to ensure that our diagnostic services meet accreditation standards.”

The Breast Healthcare Center is the first breast center in the Keck Medicine of USC health system to achieve this accreditation. The hospital gives special thanks to Michelle Sullivan, Alexander Carr, Weston Anderson, and Gita Mirani for their leadership. It also thanks Drs. Linda Hovanessian Larsen, Mary Yamashita and Jennifer Choi, as well as the center’s mammography and MRI technologists.
