Hospital at Wood River Seeks Approval of ACS Group WOOD RIVER—The board of dl-j rector* of Wood River Township Hospital are seeking approval of the American College of Surgeons.

Martin said Wednesday, "In general, it is a good hospital and we feel our approval would be warranted by the American College of Surgeons." The approval has not been sought until his time because the hospital had not been In "operation long enough to have a performance record which is required for ACS approval. The ACS is set up by the medical, profession to raise the standards of medical care rendered by both the doctors and the hospitals. It is a protection lo patients and Is evidence that' the hospital Is operating at a high standard, Martin said that it is now felt that the hospital, has high enough standards lo secure the approval, but may be lacking on some minor points. If the inspection reveals deficiencies, the hospital will attempt to correct them so that approval can be obtained later. The hospital presently is registered with the American Medical Association and is a member of the American Hospital Association.
