THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

A south Georgia hospital is honored for how it diagnoses and treats breast cancer.

The Archbold Women's Center has been designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.

This designation is awarded to facilities that earn accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound.

"Our focus is always on Breast Cancer whether it's October or July, but this designation really focuses on the fact that Archbold is dedicated to patient care and we want to do everything we can to optimize the care we give in breast cancer imaging as well as treatment," said Diagnostic Radiologist Dr. Mary Anne Bullard.

The designation process is voluntary, but a facility needs to pass rigorous accreditation programs to earn it.
