Paris, TN –Courtney Flowers, the Director of Imaging Services at Henry County Medical Center recently earned Certified Radiology Administrator (CRA) certification, the hospital announced today.
The Certified Radiology Administrator (CRA) credential is an exam-based certification tailored specifically to medical imaging administration.

A CRA is a professional with tested, proven knowledge and excellence in: human resource management, asset resource management, fiscal management, operations management and communication and information management. The CRA program, including the examination, is managed by the Radiology Administration Certification Commission (RACC), a self-governing body created to maintain the credential’s integrity and relevance.
