Commission on Cancer
Approval by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancers. To meet the standard for approval, each cancer program, and the organization to which it belongs, must undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of its performance. Our cancer program has been accredited through the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer since 1989 and recently received re-accreditation in 2017. The Scully-Welsh Cancer Center’s Tumor Registry participates in the National Cancer Database.
