In 2005 and 2008, Cancer CaroMont Cancer Center was awarded the American
College of Surgeons, Commission on Cancer’s Outstanding Achievement Award.
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. 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 which the CaroMont program has achieved.
