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.
