Highline Medical Center’s Cancer Program Receives Achievement Award
BTB Advertiser Highline Medical Center’s Cancer Care Program received the 2010 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC). This award recognizes excellence in providing quality care to patients.
The CoC Outstanding Achievement Award is granted to facilities that demonstrate a commendation level of compliance in six areas of cancer program activity: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach, and quality improvement. Compliance is determined during an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor. CoC surveyors were impressed with how Highline provides care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Highline’s cancer program is the only program in Washington to receive this award in 2010.
