Emory cancer care gets accreditation

Emory University Hospital Midtown has been granted a three-year accreditation with commendation to the cancer services program from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.

The accreditation program sets quality-of-care standards for cancer programs and reviews the facilities to ensure they conform to those standards.

The commendation is earned by demonstration of a full scope of cancer services, including cancer data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement.  A multi-specialty team approach to care and access to information on clinical trials, new treatment options and other cancer-related information are  also part of the standards.
