accreditation since 1993, renewed annually. 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

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
