Commission on Cancer Accredited Program
The Commission on Cancer is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life of patients with cancer through standards setting, prevention, research, education, and the monitoring of comprehensive care.
The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC) represents the leaders in cancer care and partners with more than 50 organizations, including the American Cancer Society and LIVESTRONG, on patient-centered initiatives.
The CoC recognizes this CoC-accredited cancer program for their voluntary commitment to providing high quality, patient-centered care.
As a CoC-accredited cancer program, Holzer Center for Cancer Care demonstrates an important commitment to providing all patients with access to services they need from diagnoses through treatment, rehabilitation, and survivorship care.
Receiving care at a CoC-Accredited Cancer program ensures that you will receive:
- Comprehensive care, including a range of state-of-the-art services and equipment.
- A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options.
- Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options.
- Access to cancer-related information, education, and support.
- A cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results and offers lifelong patient follow-up.
- Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care.
CoC accreditation challenges cancer programs to enhance the care they provide by addressing patient-centered needs and measuring the quality of the care they deliver against national standards. CoC accreditation provides value through improved patient outcomes across all domains of care: access and service, satisfaction and well-being, quality of care and cancer outcomes.
