Recognized for Outstanding Achievement
Nationally-recognized Care from the Thibodaux Regional Cancer Institute
Thibodaux Regional Cancer Institute has years of experience offering the
best diagnostic and treatment technology in the region, and we have the
honors and awards to prove it including Accreditation with Commendation
by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
In 2003, Thibodaux Regional’s cancer program earned its first three-year
accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
Since that time, the program has continued to be re-accredited. The program
is also a four-time recipient of the Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA)
by the American College of Surgeons.
Recognizing the Best
Established in 2004, the (OAA) was created to recognize cancer programs
that go above and beyond to ensure quality cancer care.
In order to receive the (OAA), a facility must pass an on-site evaluation
by a physician surveyor, demonstrate compliance with a set of six standards
created by the Commission on Cancer, and receive a compliance rating for
the remaining required for accreditation.
The purpose of the award is to raise the bar on quality cancer care, with
the ultimate goal of increasing awareness about quality care choices among
cancer patients and their loved ones. In addition, the award is intended
to accomplish the following:
- Recognize those cancer programs that achieve excellence in providing quality
care to cancer patients
- Motivate other cancer programs to work toward improving their level of care
- Facilitate a dialogue between award recipients and health care professionals
at other cancer facilities for the purpose of sharing best practices
- Encourage honorees to serve as quality care resources to other cancer programs
In light of its dedication to patient care and satisfaction, Thibodaux
Regional was also the first hospital in Louisiana to be recognized by
the J.D. Power and Associates Distinguished Hospital Program and the only
acute-care hospital in the state to earn the Healthgrades Outstanding
Patient Experience Award fourteen years in a row.
These recognitions would not be possible without the excellent teamwork
and communication among staff and physicians.
