Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) Atlanta has achieved three-year re-accreditation as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program from the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a program of the American College of Surgeons.
Accreditation from the CoC demonstrates a cancer program’s commitment to providing high-quality, multidisciplinary, patient-centered care and access to the full scope of cancer care services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and support patients along their journey.
“We are proud to kick off the new year with CoC re-accreditation,” said Cancer Committee Chair Sean Cavanaugh, MD, chief of radiation oncology. “This accomplishment is testament to the collective leadership and hard work put forth by our physicians, clinicians and many other team members who put their heart and soul into achieving national standards of care for our patients as well as our community.”
CoC-accredited cancer programs offer cancer patients: comprehensive care; a multidisciplinary, team approach; treatment planning based on evidence-based national treatment guidelines; clinical trials and new treatment options; follow-up care including a survivorship care plan; and more.
In addition to the Commission on Cancer, CTCA Atlanta is accredited and recognized by several renowned professional health care organizations that assess and monitor the quality of patient care, including The Joint Commission, Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) and National Accreditation Program For Breast Cancers (NAPBC).
