The Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), has granted another Three-Year Accreditation to the cancer program at Good Samaritan Hospital, making this the 6th survey it has earned this honor, for a total of 18 years. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every 3 years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.
