SELLERSVILLE PA – The cancer care program offered by the Grand View Health System has been reviewed by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons, and won national accreditation for the next three years, it announced Tuesday (May 2, 2022).

To earn accreditation, Grand View said it was required to ensure its program met 34 commission-set quality care standards, to maintain specific levels in delivering comprehensive patient-centered care, and agreed to be evaluated every three years through a survey.

Grand View Health is a member of the Penn Cancer Network. It said it works in collaboration with Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center to provide advanced cancer care. Patients receiving radiation oncology services at Grand View are treated by Penn Medicine physicians, it added.

Its cancer program also is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, and is recognized as a Hidden Scar Center of Excellence for Hidden Scar Breast Surgery.

Like all commission-accredited facilities, Grand View Health maintains a cancer registry and contributes data to the National Cancer Database. Data on all types of cancer are tracked and analyzed through the database and used to explore trends in cancer care.
