This year we received many new accreditations. Highlights include:
Accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). As the first hospital in the area accredited by the ACoS in 1990, Mercy was re-accredited again in 2011, having received a Three-Year Approval with Commendation.
Mercy’s Women’s Center is a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, according to the American College of Radiology (ACR) for mammography, breast ultrasound, ultrasound-guided biopsy, and stereotactic biopsy.
Reinforcing that excellent cancer care is consistently offered close to home at the Hall-Perrine Cancer Center, Oncology Associates (OA) at Mercy has been recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology. This program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet standards for quality cancer care.
