Touro’s Cancer Program is dedicated to offering the best in cancer care.
Our cancer program has been recognized by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons as offering the very best in cancer care. This elite designation reflects the quality of our comprehensive, multidisciplinary patient care. We’re proud to bring you the very best in today’s cancer care from diagnosis and treatment, to support and survivorship.
A facility receives a Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation following the on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the facility demonstrates a Commendation level of compliance with one or more standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program, including: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement.
“CoC accreditation is recognized as the gold standard in cancer care. We are proud that Touro’s program has received this elite designation and are committed to providing highest level of cancer care for our patients,” says Touro Oncologist and Chairman of Touro’s Cancer Committee, Dr. Salvador Caputto.
Accreditation by the CoC is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to providing the highest level of quality cancer care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. Of over 500 programs surveyed in 2011, only 104 programs nationwide achieved the CoC Outstanding Achievement Award status.
