Posted on: March 06, 2020

 

For the sixth consecutive time, the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons has granted its annual Outstanding Achievement Award to the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute.

Forty-eight accredited cancer programs throughout the United States received the 2019 Outstanding Achievement Award, representing approximately seven percent of programs surveyed by the CoC January 1–December 31, 2019. Northside Hospital is the only program to have received the award six times. Northside has received the recognition for every survey performed since the award’s inception in 2004 (2004, 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019).

“These cancer programs currently represent the best of the best when it comes to cancer care,” said Lawrence N. Shulman, MD, MACP, chair of the CoC. “Each of these facilities is not just meeting nationally recognized standards for the delivery of quality cancer care, they are exceeding them.”

“This award is a direct result of the hard work of our medical staff and their ongoing commitment to provide high quality, multidisciplinary cancer care,” said Patti Owen, director of the Northside Hospital Cancer Institute. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have received it a sixth time.”
