Recognized for Providing Outstanding Patient Care
The Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center has received the 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer (CoC). The Center is one of only 20 accredited cancer programs in the United States to receive this national honor. The award recognizes cancer programs that achieve excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients.
Being a Commission on Cancer designated cancer center of excellence, we were also awarded a 3 year commendation for being a Teaching Hospital Cancer Program. That means that we've met the requirements in association with a medical school, and we offer a full range of diagnostic and treatment services on our campus, and we participate in training residents in multiple disciplines.
Every member of our medical staff is board-certified in a major medical specialty, including medicine, surgery, radiology, pathology, oncology, radiation oncology and hematology.
Our cancer program participates in clinical and genetic cancer research, education, treatment and clinical trials. Many of our individual cancer departments also have discipline-specific accreditations, including:
- Radiology — American College of Radiology for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Mammography and Ultrasound
