Spotlight on CoC Programs
CoC Recognizes Longest-Standing Programs

As a CoC-accredited cancer program, your organization has made a commitment to providing your community with high-quality, multidisciplinary, patient-centered cancer care. Your program continues to evolve and grow in response to new diagnostic and treatment modalities, quality assurance and improvement initiatives, and the needs of cancer patients and their families. Currently, there are nearly 1,500 CoC-accredited programs throughout the U.S.  

In this new column, the CoC recognizes accredited programs based on a number of criteria—years of continuous accreditation, best practices, or contributions to their individual communities. 

For the inaugural column, the CoC recognizes programs that have maintained CoC accreditation for at least 80 consecutive years.
