Piedmont's Cancer Services is proud to be accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a program of the American College of Surgeons.

Commission on Cancer accreditation is a voluntary commitment by a cancer program that ensures its patients have access to the full scope of services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and support patients with cancer and their families. A CoC cancer program will continually evaluate its performance and take proactive, corrective actions when necessary.  This continuous evaluation reaffirms the program’s commitment to providing high-quality cancer care.

Accredited programs receive notable benefits that enhance their cancer program, including:

  • National recognition: CoC accreditation is nationally recognized by organizations such as The Joint Commission, American Cancer Society, Aetna, CMS, NQF and the National Cancer Institute as having established performance measures for the provision of high-quality cancer care.
  • Organized care: The CoC offers cancer programs an organizational model for delivering comprehensive, multidisciplinary cancer care.
  • Quality improvement measures: Participation in the National Cancer Data Base and access to Comparison Benchmark Reports and other resource tools enable CoC-accredited programs to compare their quality of care and improve performance based on nationally recognized quality measures and standards of care.
  • Data analysis: Participation in the CoC special studies developed to address essential issues in cancer care.
  • Public awareness: Free promotion and national exposure are available to accredited programs through CoC marketing efforts, the CoC Hospital Locator, select payers and organizations promoting patient information about where to receive quality cancer care. 

For the patient and community, the quality standards established by the CoC for cancer programs ensure:

  • Comprehensive care, including a complete range of state-of-the-art services and equipment
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best available treatment options
  • Information about ongoing cancer clinical trials and new treatment options
  • Access to prevention and early detection programs, cancer education and support services
  • A cancer registry that offers lifelong patient follow-up 
  • Ongoing monitoring and improvements in cancer care
  • Quality care, close to home
