After undergoing a rigorous on-site review of its comprehensive cancer services, Saint Agnes Medical Center received yet another three-year approval by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Areas that received commendations include:

  • Cancer-related quality improvements
  • Clinical trials accruals
  • Prevention and early detection programs
  • National Cancer Database submissions met quality criteria for each year between surveys
  • Cancer education for Cancer Registry staff
  • Outcomes analysis

Approval by the CoC is given only to facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancers.
