Our program is accredited with commendation by The American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer. This voluntary accreditation is part of our commitment to ensuring that all our patients have access to a full range of medical services from a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and other cancer specialists.

Cancer is a complex group of diseases, and our multidisciplinary approach results in improved cancer care and better patient outcomes. This collaborative approach begins with the Cancer Committee, which provides leadership, sets goals, monitors program activity, and evaluates patient treatment plans and survival rates. Our Cancer Team Conferences provide a forum for patient consultations to determine appropriate treatment plans and, by sharing information, helps physicians stay abreast of the latest developments in cancer care.
