• Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons Grants Full Three-Year Accreditation to Parrish Medical Center's Cancer Program


    TITUSVILLE, Fla. - The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted three-year full accreditation to the Cancer Program at Parrish Medical Center, located at 951 N. Washington Ave., Titusville, Fla.

    “Parrish Medical Center is proud to be recognized for its clinical excellence in cancer care because it is recognition of the exceptional people we have dedicated to caring for the community we serve,” said George Mikitarian, Parrish Medical Center President/CEO.

    Accreditation by the CoC is earned by those facilities that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their cancer care outcomes. Only 30 percent of facilities in the U.S. have earned CoC accreditation, but those facilities treat 71 percent of all new cancers.

    Receiving care at a CoC-approved cancer program ensures that a patient will have access to:

    • Comprehensive care, including a range of state-of-the art services and equipment
    • Multispecialty, team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
    • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
    • Access to cancer-related information, education, and support
    • A cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers and treatment results and offers lifelong patient follow-up
    • Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care
    • And, most importantly, quality care close to home

    Three-year accreditation is earned following an on-site evaluation during which the facility demonstrates a level of compliance with the CoC’s Cancer Program Standards, including program management, clinical services, continuum of care, patient outcomes, and data quality. These categories align with the current healthcare focus on patient-centered care coordination, quality, and outcomes.
