Levine Cancer Institute Earns Highest Recognition by American College of Surgeons
Carolinas HealthCare System's Levine Cancer Institute received full accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC) for its commitment to providing comprehensive, high-quality cancer care for patients system-wide. The Institute also earned the CoC's Gold Star Award for demonstrating a Commendation level of compliance with the eight standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program at seven of the Institute's network locations.
The eight standards that form the Gold Star Award are drawn from the following six areas of program activity: Cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach and quality improvement.
Nationwide Levine Cancer Institute is one of three of the largest networks in the CoC and the only recipient in this category that has received this level of accreditation. Network facilities accredited include: Carolinas Medical Center's Main, Mercy, Pineville, University, Union and Northeast locations and Cleveland Regional Medical Center.
