The Cancer Program of Rutherford Regional


Applying for and maintaining Commission on Cancer (CoC) approval is a voluntary commitment by a cancer program that ensures its patients will have access to the full scope of services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate, and support patients with cancer and their families. A cancer program is able to continually evaluate its performance and take proactive corrective action when necessary. This continuous evaluation reaffirms the commitment of the program to provide quality cancer care.

In 2001 Rutherford Regional first received approval as a Community Hospital Cancer Program. The most recent survey was in 2016 when the Cancer Program at Rutherford Regional learned that it received three-year accreditation.  For our patients and Community, the quality standards established by the CoC for cancer programs ensure that Rutherford Regional provides:

  • Comprehensive care including a complete range of state-of-the-art services and equipment
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best available treatment options
  • Information about ongoing cancer clinical trials and new treatment options
  • Access to prevention and early detection programs, cancer education, and support services
  • A cancer registry that offers lifelong patient follow-up
  • Ongoing monitoring and improvements in cancer care, and
  • Quality care, close to home
