Congratulations to the Preliminary 2014 OAA Recipients

The 76 cancer programs listed below represent the preliminary list of Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) recipients from surveys performed during 2014. “Preliminary” simply means that these facilities have been identified as OAA recipients and confirmed by the Commission on Cancer (CoC)’s Program Review Subcommittee. However, additional cancer programs may be added or facility names may be corrected.
We ask that all programs surveyed in 2014 review this list and contact the Accreditation team at by Friday, March 13, if you believe that your cancer program may be eligible to earn the OAA (met all seven commendation standards), but is not included on the list, or if your facility name is listed incorrectly.
The finalized 2014 OAA recipient list will be published online following the confirmation deadline. More details regarding accessing the marketing materials and OAA trophy will be e-mailed directly to your Cancer Program Administrator at each facility.
It is essential that contact information for the Cancer Program Administrator (found under the “Manage Staff Contacts” section in CoC Datalinks) is up-to-date and accurate. Any OAA questions should be sent to
