Commission on Cancer

Penrose Cancer Center is proud to receive the Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award

Established in 2004, the Commission on Cancer (CoC) Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. A facility receives the OAA following the on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the facility demonstrates a Commendation level of compliance with seven standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program and also receives a compliance rating for the remaining 29 standards.

The seven standards that form the basis of the OAA criteria are drawn from the following six areas of program activity:

• cancer committee leadership
• cancer data management
• clinical management
• research
• community outreach
• quality improvement

OAA recipients represent community-based facilities; teaching hospitals, NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, pediatric, and Network Cancer Programs as well as both newly accredited programs and those that are currently accredited by the Commission on Cancer.
