Valley’s Cancer Program Accredited with Commendation

 
  

April 16, 2013 - The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons has once again awarded a Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation to the Cancer Program at The Valley Hospital.

This high level of recognition only occurs when a program meets or exceeds all 34 quality care standards monitored by the Commission on Cancer and the program receives one or more commendations.  Accreditation by the Commission on Cancer is only given to facilities that voluntarily commit to providing the highest level of quality of cancer care through a patient-centered, multidisciplinary approach.

“This level of approval, one of  the highest awarded by the Commission on Cancer, is testament to the continued commitment to excellence demonstrated by all the members of our Oncology team,” said Robert Korst, M.D., Medical Director of Valley’s Blumenthal Cancer Center.

Patients who receive care at an approved cancer program can be assured that they will have access to comprehensive care, state-of-the-art technology, and a multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options.  They will receive information about ongoing clinical trials and have access to up to date disease specific cancer education, supportive services, and lifelong patient follow-up.

To maintain accreditation, facilities must undergo an on-site review every three years.  The Commission on Cancer is a consortium of professional organizations that strives to improve patient outcomes.
