The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons has granted its 2009 Outstanding Achievement Award to Sibley Memorial Hospital's Cancer Center, part of a select group of 82 currently accredited and newly accredited cancer programs across the United States.
Established in 2004, the CoC Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients.
The award is granted to facilities that demonstrate a Commendation level of compliance with six standards that represent five areas of cancer program activity to include cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, research, community outreach and quality improvement.
A Comprehensive Breast Health Center
The Sullivan Center for Breast Health has been granted a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.
Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. The Sullivan Center achievement of NAPBC accreditation demonstrates a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.
Only a comprehensive breast health center such as Sibley's organizes multidisciplinary services into a fully integrated system of care. Breast imaging, breast cancer and breast reconstruction surgery, radiation oncology, physical therapy and other key teams collaborate closely to ensure the well-being of each patient. Our National Consortium of Breast Centers certified CBPN Nurse Navigator is available to guide patients through what might be an unfamiliar and often anxiety producing process.
