Designation is first in Virginia, 29th in the nation

Norfolk, VA – August 12, 2009 - Cancer patients in Hampton Roads now have access to the first system in Virginia to win accreditation as a ‘Network Cancer Program’ from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.

The Sentara Cancer Network is among just 29 systems in the nation to achieve this designation.

Sentara Healthcare and supportive community physicians, including Virginia Oncology Associates, have worked together for more than three years to create a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to cancer care that helps achieve better outcomes for patients.

The four Network accredited hospitals are Sentara Norfolk General, Sentara Virginia Beach General, Sentara CarePlex in Hampton and Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center.

The Sentara Cancer Network brings together a broad spectrum of medical specialties, the latest technologies and therapies for diagnosis and treatment, a vigorous clinical trial program, prospective tumor boards and benchmarked outcomes data to assure that cancer patients receive the most individualized and thorough treatment programs available in the region.

Other Sentara hospitals are working toward being added to the ACOS accredited network in coming years.
