St. Luke's Regional Cancer Center LogoSt. Luke’s is pleased to announce that St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center has re-earned national accreditation from the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).

The American College of Surgeons has granted another three-year accreditation to the cancer program at St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center. St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center has been accredited since 1991. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.

Because it is a CoC-accredited cancer center, St. Luke’s Regional Cancer Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer as a complex group of diseases that requires consultation among surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, and other cancer specialists. This multidisciplinary partnership results in improved patient care.
