Commission on Cancer (COC)
Improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients
The Genesis Cancer Care Center is accredited by the Commission on Cancer (COC), a program of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). The commission recognizes cancer care programs for their commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality and multidisciplinary patient-centered care. The COC is dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients through standard-setting, prevention, research, education and monitoring of comprehensive quality care.
Achieving excellence in cancer treatment
COC-accredited centers like the Genesis Cancer Care Center demonstrate a commitment to patients and the community by providing education on preventing or finding cancer early; offering treatment and therapies; and supporting patients through survival. As part of maintaining COC accreditation, a multidisciplinary team at Genesis, the COC Committee, meets regularly to coordinate care and ensure quality measures continue to be met.
Adhering to COC requirements
The Commission on Cancer requires a specific program structure, comprehensive program services and COC Committee responsibilities to earn and maintain accreditation by the COC. Each site is required to submit information to the COC for review and pass a site survey. Surveys occur every three years.
