Our Physician Team
Our nationally recognized cancer program is ready to treat patients with a complete team of doctors who bring their expertise together every day.
The Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, has accredited the HFM Cancer Center since 1998. In 2017 our program received a rating of “3 year approval with Commendation as a Community Hospital Cancer Program.
The CoC encompasses the best minds in cancer care utilizing expertise from the entire oncology community to set the highest standards of care for CoC-accredited cancer programs.
CoC accreditation challenges cancer programs to enhance the care they provide by addressing patient-centered needs and measuring the quality of the care they deliver against national standards. It provides value through improved patient outcomes across all domains of care: access and service, satisfaction and well-being, quality of care and cancer outcomes.
The staff of the HFM Cancer Center is passionate about providing this high-level of service to its patients and is pleased to have received this accreditation.
The HFM Cancer Center staff visited two local grade schools with a skin cancer prevention presentation in the spring 2016; reaching about 200 children from kindergarten to 8th grade. In September 2016 they surveyed the 3rd through 8th graders with a written questionnaire. 97% of those surveyed remembered strategies of how to protect oneself from the sunlight. About half of the students could recall detailed information regarding sunscreen qualities and use. The vast majority (94%) recognized that early detection of skin cancer can save lives. 82% thought the skin cancer prevention presentation helped them to protect themselves during the summer, and 68% shared this information with family or friends. Staff received many positive comments from the principals, parents, and children, inquiring when they could come back.
