The Cancer Center
The Cancer Center of North Florida Regional Healthcare is dedicated to helping patients accomplish one goal. Beat Cancer.
We are part of a cancer program that is accredited by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program. Our program is growing, and we believe that is a result of three central components of how we deliver care. We invest in state-of-the-art technology. Our physicians are expert, experienced and dedicated. Our staff are caring, committed and driven to give patients all the support they need. The combination of these central components translates into help, hope and healing.
American College of Radiology Accredited
The Cancer Center has been awarded a three year accreditation in radiation oncology by the American College of Radiology (ACR). ACR accrediation is a high honor for radiation oncology treatment facilities because it represents the highest level of quality and patient safety.
Radiation oncology (radiation therapy) is the careful use of high-energy radiation to treat cancer. A radiation oncologist can use radiation to effectively treat cancer or to relieve a cancer patient’s pain.
The ACR is the nation’s oldest and most widely accepted radiation oncology accrediting body. With more than 600 accredited sites and 27 years of accreditation experience, ACR accreditation recognizes facilities that provide quality of care and patient safety. Accreditation is awarded to facilities meeting specific practice guidelines and technical standards developed by ACR after a peer-review evaluation by board-certified and expert radiation oncologists and medical physicists.
The organization assesses patient care and treatment, patient safety, personnel qualifications, adequacy of facility equipment, quality control procedures, and quality assurance programs. The findings are reported to the ACR Committee on Radiation Oncology Accreditation, which subsequently provides the practice with a comprehensive report it can use for continuous practice improvement.
Cancer Prevention Study-3
We are honored to announce that The Cancer Center is Gainesville’s only host site for Cancer Prevention Study-3. This major, national research program for the American Cancer Society will follow 300,000 people for decades. The goal is to find new information about preventing cancer. Our goal is to enroll 350 participants from the Gainesville area. We hope you will consider being a part of this study that has the potential to change our world.
