The cancer center at Altru is receiving a three year accreditation for its programs and services.

Only one third of the cancer programs in the country are accredited and Altru is proud to be among them. The Center is being commended by the American College of Surgeons after an on-site evaluation. The accreditation program sets "quality of care" standards that must be met. The Center is also developing several new programs, including a cancer survivorship program and new ways to assess patients.
