Commission On Cancer

Commission On CancerThe Commission on Cancer of The American College of Surgeons has recognized St. Vincent's HealthCare's oncology program as offering high-quality cancer care. Only 1 in 4 cancer programs at hospitals across the United States receives this special approval. It recognizes the quality of our comprehensive patient care and our commitment to provide you with access to all of the various medical specialists involved in diagnosing and treating cancer.

Receiving care from a CoC-approved Cancer Program ensures that you will receive:

  • Comprehensive care, including a range of state-of-the-art services and equipment
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
  • Access to cancer-related information
  • Inclusion in a cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment, results, and lifelong follow-up
  • Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care
  • Quality care close to home
