FAIRFIELD MEMORIAL HOSPITAL ACHIEVES ANNUAL DESIGNATION FOR MAMMOGRAPHY QUALITY STANDARDS

Fairfield Memorial Hospital Diagnostic Imaging Mammography Department achieved designation for Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) during a recent inspection.  Congress enacted the MQSA in 1992 to establish national quality standards for mammography.  This legislation addresses many aspects of mammography, from equipment requirements to reporting standards.  The MQSA helps ensure that all women have access to quality mammography for the detection of breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages. Fairfield Memorial Hospital currently takes its mobile Mammography Services to Fairfield, Carmi, Grayville, Cisne, Albion, and Louisville throughout the year.

Kathy Bunting-Williams Ph.D., Chief Executive Director, stated, “I would like to thank all the skilled Mammography and Diagnostic Imaging staff who work each day to make sure we offer the best care possible. This designation further validates the type of care our patients receive while utilizing our Diagnostic Imaging Mammography Services.”
