Palos Community Hospital designated
a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence

Palos Community Hospital’s Radiology department has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology’s (ACR) Commission on Quality and Safety.

At the Palos Women’s Center locations, both at the hospital and in Tinley Park, patients benefit from access to industry standards in diagnostic imaging and medical technology.

“We are proud to receive this award of excellence from the ACR,” says Gregory Ostrowski, D.O., a radiologist at Palos Community Hospital. “Our team is dedicated to providing quality patient care to our community.”

The Center of Excellence designation recognizes the highest level of achievement in breast imaging by successfully earning accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast MRI, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Palos Community Hospital participates in the review process to ensure it meets nationally accepted standards established by the ACR.

The ACR is a national professional organization serving more than 36,000 diagnostic/interventional radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, and medical physicists with programs focusing on the practice of medical imaging and radiation oncology and the delivery of comprehensive health care services. 

The Breast Health Services team at Palos provides an integrated and full-range approach to breast health – from diagnosis to treatment and recovery. Palos offers advanced breast health imaging and mammography technology in Chicago’s southwest suburbs, backed by a supportive team of highly specialized breast health experts.
