Scott & White Glenda Vasicek Cancer Center receives national achievement award
Date:4/27/2011

TEMPLE, Texas (April 26, 2011) The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons has granted its Outstanding Achievement Award to Scott & White's Glenda Vasicek Cancer Center as a result of surveys performed in 2010. Scott & White Healthcare, the only facility in Texas to receive this award, is one of a select group of 90 currently accredited and newly-accredited cancer programs across the country.

Established in 2004, the CoC Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. The award is granted to facilities that demonstrate a Commendation level of compliance with seven standards that represent six areas of cancer program activity: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach, and quality improvement.

"This recognition speaks to Scott & White's commitment to provide multi-modality cancer care," says Subhakar Mutyala, M.D., chairman, department of radiation oncology. "We have a very collaborative team approach to diagnosing and treating cancer. I am honored to be a part of an institution that has been recognized on a national level for its quality of care."

The level of compliance with the seven standards is determined during an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor. In addition, facilities must receive a compliance rating for the remaining 29 cancer program standards. Ninety programs, including Scott & White Healthcare, received the OAA as a result of surveys performed in 2010. This number represents approximately 17 percent of programs surveyed during this period. A majority of recipients are community-based facilities; however, teaching hospitals, NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, Pediatric, and Network Cancer Programs also received the award.

The CoC's core functions include setting standards for quality, multidisciplinar
