  • According to Daniel P. McKellar, MD, FACS, chair of the CoC, “More and more, we’re finding that patients and their families want to know how the health care institutions in their communities compare with one another.

    “These 79 cancer programs surveyed in 2012 currently represent the best of the best—so to speak—when it comes to cancer care,” he said. “Each of these facilities is not just meeting nationally recognized standards for the delivery of quality cancer care, they are exceeding them.”

    The 79 award-winning, cancer treatment programs represent approximately 19 percent of programs surveyed by the CoC in 2012, according to the Commission on Cancer. Recipients include teaching hospitals, community-based facilities, National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, Veterans Administration hospitals, and Network Cancer Programs.
