The Vermont Cancer Center has been awarded a “Three Year Accreditation with Commendation” from the Commission on Cancer, a component of the American College of Surgeons.  It is the highest performance rating granted by the Commission, and is based on comparisons to all accredited cancer programs in the nation, according to a VCC press release.

The Vermont Cancer Center earned this renewed designation for surpassing numerous standards that encompass research activity, clinical care, quality improvement and community outreach.  Seven areas were given special recognition including outcomes analysis, the number of clinical trials underway and strong efforts to educate the public on prevention and early detection.

“Earning the highest rating is a testament to the teamwork of dozens of specialists and staff who are all dedicated to providing our patients and their families with the excellent care they need from diagnosis to survivorship support,” said Claire Verschraegen, M.D., co-director of the Vermont Cancer Center.
