The Cancer Center at University of Maryland Shore Regional Health
The Cancer Center is accredited by The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. This esteemed national distinction is awarded to cancer treatment facilities that deliver quality patient care with a focus on prevention, early diagnosis, pre-treatment evaluation, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, surveillance for recurrent disease, survivorship and support services, and end-of-life care. Accreditation also considers a cancer program's ongoing participation in cancer research, the extent of research and education offered in the community, and the types of quality improvement activities that address patient care.
