Message from the Chairman

As Chairman of The Medical Center's Cancer Committee, it is my honor to work with such a dedicated group of individuals who put cancer care at the forefront. They represent the various disciplines required to provide the highest quality of cancer care for our community. These individuals are dedicated to continually improving the service we provide in the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer.

Because of the Committee's hard work and the dedication of employees throughout The Medical Center who care for cancer patients, The Medical Center maintains accreditation by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. The Accreditation Program sets quality-of-care standards for cancer programs and reviews the programs to ensure they conform to those standards. Accreditation by the CoC is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.

The community can be assured that The Medical Center is providing the very best in cancer care. With comprehensive services, the latest technology, highly trained physicians, and experienced staff, The Medical Center is the leader in cancer care in Southcentral Kentucky.
