American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Between 2004 and 2019, the Commission on Cancer (CoC) awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in demonstrating compliance with the CoC standards and are committed to ensuring high quality cancer care. 

CoC-accredited cancer programs earned the OAA after completing the accreditation survey and receiving a Performance Report that indicates an accreditation award of “Three-Year with Commendation.” Specifically, the program must receive commendation ratings for the commendation level standards and no deficiencies for the remaining standards. 

Recipients from the last three-year survey cycles are recognized here.
