BVHS: Cancer Care Center Achieves Accreditation

The Armes Family Cancer Care Center, a division of Blanchard Valley Health System, has achieved a four-year accreditation for its radiation oncology department by meeting the standards of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx®).

 

The Armes Family Cancer Care Center achieved accreditation through APEx® by undergoing a rigorous, voluntary, multi-step process during which its policies and procedures were evaluated using consensus-based standards for radiation oncology practice. This accreditation demonstrates The Armes Family Cancer Care Center’s commitment to high standards of safety and quality and shows that it practices patient-centered care by promoting effective communication, coordinating treatment and engaging patients and their families as partners in care.

“Delivering safe, quality care to our patients is The Armes Family Cancer Care Center’s top priority,” said David Spears, service line director for oncology and outpatient specialty services at Blanchard Valley Health System. “In times of need, patients must have the ability to count on their cancer care providers. We achieved this accreditation not for ourselves, but to assure our patients that they are receiving the most elite radiation oncology care possible.”

 

“ASTRO commends The Armes Family Cancer Care Center for achieving APEx® accreditation. The center has demonstrated a commitment to providing its patients with safe, high-quality radiation oncology services,” said Paul Harari, MD, FASTRO, chair of the ASTRO Board of Directors.
