Point of Pride: Summit Healthcare / by Joe Furia

Congratulations to Summit Healthcare Cancer Center for earning National Accreditation from the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Summit Healthcare would be the first rural hospital in Arizona to have its cancer center CoC accredited making this recognition even more special. The CoC Accreditation Program provides the framework for Summit Healthcare’s Cancer Center to improve its quality of patient care through various cancer-related programs that focus on the full spectrum of cancer care including prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, life-long follow up for recurrent disease, and end-of-life care.
