Outcomes and Accreditation

Outcomes meeting

Commission on Cancer, American College of Surgeons

The Lefcourt Family Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center at Englewood Health is a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program, accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation allows programs to demonstrate the high quality of care that they provide and their commitment to continuous quality improvement. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed certain quality care standards and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care, as demonstrated every three years during a rigorous on-site survey.
