Health Information Rush Cancer Program Awarded Outstanding Achievement

The American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer (CoC) has recognized Rush University Medical Center with the 2008 Outstanding Achievement Award. Rush has received this award each of the two times it has been surveyed by the CoC.

The CoC gives approval only to programs that have demonstrated a commitment to providing the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment. To maintain approval, facilities with approved cancer programs must undergo an onsite review every three years.

To earn the Outstanding Achievement Award, cancer programs must demonstrate a commen-dation level for standards above and beyond the 29 standards needed for compliance approval. These extra standards are for leadership, data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement.

"Receiving care at a CoC-approved program means patients have access to ongoing clinical trials and to the best treatment options and cancer-related information, education and support," says Katherine Griem, MD, radiation oncologist and chairperson of the Rush Cancer Committee.
