Meridian, Miss. Anderson Regional Cancer Center has been granted a 3-year accreditation with commendation by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
Anderson says in order to earn this accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain high levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.
“By voluntarily submitting to a survey that closely examines our facility and procedures, we are showing our patients that we strive for the highest care possible,” said Anderson Regional Medical center CEO, Ray Humphreys in a news release.
Anderson Regional Cancer Center maintains a cancer registry and contributes data to the National Cancer Data Base, a joint program of the CoC and American Cancer Society. Data on all types of cancer are tracked and analyzed through the NCDB and used to explore trends in cancer care.
