In September 2009, the Augusta Health Cancer Center program was surveyed by a physician representative of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Based on the outstanding cancer center program at Augusta Health, the Program received full Cancer Accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer, a status it has maintained since 1994. The 2009 accreditation decision recognized the Augusta Health Cancer Center program in a new category, The Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program, based on the growth in volumes that have taken place in the last three years.
This award provides national recognition of the quality and comprehensive provision of services at the Augusta Health Cancer Center. We are proud of our cancer center programs and our dedicated physicians and employees who have helped Augusta Health achieve not only full accreditation, but also special recognition with commendation for all six standards where commendation is possible.
