DR. JOHN CULLINEY OF WILCOX MEMORIAL HOSPITAL INDUCTED AS FELLOW OF THE AMERICAN COLLEGE OF RADIOLOGY
Wilcox Memorial Hospital is pleased to recognize radiologist Dr. John Culliney on his induction as a Fellow in the American College of Radiology (FACR). Culliney is one of only 100 American College of Radiology (ACR) members inducted into this year’s Fellowship, and the only Fellow inducted from Hawai‘i.
“We are very proud of Dr. John Culliney’s induction as a fellow of the American College of Radiology,” said Jen H. Chahanovich, president and CEO of Wilcox Memorial Hospital and CEO of Kaua‘i Medical Clinic. “He joins a prestigious group of physicians and researchers. It’s truly an honor to have the only Hawai‘i Fellow in this year’s inductee as a member of the Wilcox ‘ohana.”
As an ACR Fellow, Culliney joins the impressive ranks of ACR members who have received one of the highest honors it can bestow on a radiologist, radiation oncologist or medical physicist. To be awarded an ACR Fellowship, a member must be in good standing of the College and have demonstrated both significant accomplishments, as well as a history of service to the College, organized radiology, teaching, or research. Since the College’s conception in 1923, both membership and induction of fellows have been reserved for members who have demonstrated prominent distinction in the specialty. Only about 10 percent of ACR members achieve this recognition. Culliney is the first FACR to practice on the island of Kaua‘i.
Dr. Culliney graduated from the UMDNJ New Jersey Medical School at Newark, now known as Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He has been practicing at Wilcox Memorial Hospital since 2001.
