WATERLOO -- The Commission on Cancer, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, has granted Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation to the cancer program at Covenant Cancer Treatment Center.
To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed the CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care. Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard requirements at the time of its triennial survey.
