Texas Oncology Waco’s Dr. Juan Godinez Earns Accreditation from American College of Radiation Oncology

The Texas Oncology Waco practice announced today that radiation oncologist Dr. Juan Godinez and his team received full accreditation from the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO), following an extensive and detailed review of the practice’s procedures, staff, equipment, facilities, and specific treatment cases.  

ACRO’s accreditation program ensures nationwide consistency in practice standards and is updated regularly to reflect clinical and scientific advances. The comprehensive review includes on-site surveys and a peer-reviewed audit scrutinizing Texas Oncology’s administrative capabilities, policies and procedures, physics, treatment safety, medical and support staff, and technology and equipment. In addition, reviewers trained in specific types of cancer examine numerous individual charts to evaluate the overall quality and effectiveness of radiation treatment given to patients. 

“We are honored to receive this independent validation of the high quality of radiation treatment that we provide patients in Waco. It’s an exhaustive review and a credit to the commitment of our dedicated physicians and support staff,” said Dr. Steve Paulson, Texas Oncology chairman and president. “The review process is an important opportunity for us to continuously reflect on our commitment to the highest standards for the radiation oncology treatment that we offer.”

Dr. Godinez has years of extensive expertise in radiation oncology. He joins eight other Central Texas-area radiation oncologists from Texas Oncology to earn full accreditation from ACRO.   

ACRO’s mission is to ensure the highest quality of care for radiation therapy patients, and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology through education, responsible socioeconomic advocacy, and integration of science and technology into clinical practice. The practice accreditation program was launched in 1995.
