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
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
• 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
