Spotlight on CoC Programs
CoC Recognizes Long-Standing Programs

CoC-accredited cancer programs provide their community with high-quality, multidisciplinary, patient-centered care. CoC programs evolve 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.
