We also obtained an approval rating for the next three years based on seven commendations received because of compliance with 36 standards set forth by CoC. This is a voluntary program designating excellence and adherence to the high standards set forth by the Commission.
Winner of the 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award
Our Cancer Center received a national award for quality in 2013: The Outstanding Achievement Award by the American College of Surgeons' (ACS) Commission on Cancer (CoC). The goal of this award is to identify centers that provide excellence in patient care. Only 74 accredited cancer treatment facilities in the United States were included in this list.
We may not be a major metropolitan community, but we are still doing good work, breaking barriers, and facilitating exciting treatments and opportunities. That's because our staff is so good at what they do. The oncologists, surgeons, hematologists, technicians, and registered nurses on our team are uniquely dedicated, qualified, and capable. Most importantly, we are passionate about our work and tireless in our efforts to serve our patients with excellence.
