"We are proud to be part of such a talented team that excels in all key cancer program standards and offers patients groundbreaking cancer treatment innovation, technology and research," said Michael Soble, MD Cancer Committee Chairman at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.

Established in 2004, the ACS Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. A facility or program can earn the award following an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the program demonstrates compliance with seven standards of excellence established by the Commission. The standards are: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach and quality improvement efforts.

Award recipients represent community-based facilities, teaching hospitals/academic medical centers, NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers, VA hospitals and network cancer programs as well as newly accredited programs and programs currently accredited by the Commission on Cancer.
