Treatment Center Directories and Resources
Find a Cancer Hospital
Approximately 71% of all newly diagnosed cancer patients in the United States are treated in the more than 1,400 facilities that are accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation as a cancer center is granted only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment and are able to comply with established CoC standards. Receiving care at a CoC-accredited cancer program hospital or facility ensures you high-quality, comprehensive care from teams of specialists who can coordinate the best treatment options available for you.
Find an Accredited Breast Center
The American College of Surgeons evaluates breast centers through its National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. To be approved, centers must meet strict standards for providing services, managing patients, participating in clinical trials, continuing physician education, and community outreach. Accredited centers voluntarily agree to maintain a high level of clinical care and are recertified every 3 years.
