CAMC’s cancer program has been accredited by the American College of Surgeon’s (ACoS) Commission on Cancer (CoC) program since 1956. This is a group that is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients by setting standards for prevention, research, education and monitoring comprehensive programs.
The program received accreditation with accommodation during the last survey. Only one third of cancer programs receive this status.
The cancer program is well on its way to accomplishing the monumental task of receiving the “Outstanding Achievement Award” through ACos. This is the goal of the next survey.
The CAMC departments of cancer services are all accredited by The Joint Commission (TJC).
All members of the cancer program at CAMC are dedicated to maintaining high program standards and providing our patients with the best possible care.
