The Peninsula Hospital Center Department of Radiation Oncology, under the direction of David Schwartz, M.D., has once again completed a successful inspection by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.

The routine inspection consisted of examinations of procedures, testing and calibration records, personnel accreditation documents, interviews with personnel and observations by the inspector as they relate to the radiation safety and quality assurance program for linear accelerators.

Peninsula Hospital Center is noted for being the only hospital center in the southeast Queens region with a linear accelerator to compliment its Cancer Treatment program.
