St. Anthony's Cancer Program

St. Anthony’s Cancer Program is approved by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. Interdisciplinary cancer conferences, along with a collaborative referral patterns, assure patients are directed to excellent care in a timely manner.

The Cancer Program at HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital is in collaboration with Crossroads Cancer Center. To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet 38 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.  

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) Advantage

When patients receive care at a CoC facility, they also have access to information on clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling, and patient centered services including psycho-social support, a patient navigation process, and a survivorship care plan that documents the care each patient receives and seeks to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life.

The CoC provides the public with information on the resources, services, and cancer treatment experience for each CoC-accredited cancer program through the CoC Hospital Locator at https://www.facs.org/search/cancer-programs.
