Orange Regional Medical Center’s Spagnoli Family Cancer Center has again received accreditation from the Commission on Cancer, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed the CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.
“At Orange Regional Medical Center, we’re committed to providing high-quality cancer care, utilizing the latest technology and treatments, right here in the Hudson Valley,” said Scott Batulis, President & CEO of Orange Regional Medical Center. “Earning this designation from the Commission on Cancer reiterates our mission of improving the health of our community by providing exceptional healthcare.”
The CoC accreditation program provides the framework for Orange Regional Medical Center to further enhance its excellent reputation for patient care through various cancer-related programs that focus on the full spectrum of cancer care, including prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal cancer treatment, rehabilitation, life-long follow-up for recurrent disease and end-of-life care. Patients who receive care at Orange Regional Medical Center may also access information on clinical trials and new cancer treatments, counseling, and services that include our individually focused patient navigators.
Like all CoC-accredited facilities, Orange Regional Medical Center maintains a cancer registry and contributes data to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), a joint program of the CoC and American Cancer Society. This nationwide oncology outcomes database is the largest clinical disease registry in the world. Data on all types of cancer are tracked and analyzed through the NCDB and used to explore trends in cancer care. CoC-accredited cancer centers, in turn, have access to information derived from this type of data analysis, which is used to create national, regional, and state benchmark reports. These reports help CoC facilities with their quality improvement efforts.
