Zimmer Cancer Center is a treatment environment offering the rare combination of clinical and technological sophistication in a centralized, convenient and welcoming setting. The excellence of care is borne out with a distinction attained by just 25 percent of the nation’s hospitals: the certification of the Zimmer Cancer Center oncology program at NHRMC as a teaching cancer hospital by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
The Commission on Cancer (CoC) accreditation ensures patients have access to comprehensive cancer care of the highest quality. The CoC, a division of the American College of Surgeons, is a “consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard-setting, prevention, research, education, and the monitoring of comprehensive quality care.” (www.facs.org/cancer) Currently, only 25% of all cancer programs in the United States are accredited.
