Point of Pride: Yuma Regional Medical Center / by Joe Furia

Congratulations to our member Yuma Regional Medical Center (YRMC) who has recently been granted three-year accreditation from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The Commission on Cancer Accreditation Program provides the framework for Cancer Centers to improve quality 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. The best part of Centers such as the YRMC Cancer Center is that patients can seek care locally and still receive access to comprehensive, state-of-the-art cancer care that is close to home.
