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 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 accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer. Since that time, the program has been re-accredited five times, most recently with silver-level commendation. The program is 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.

These standards are taken from five key areas of program activity, including:

  • Cancer committee leadership
  • Cancer data management
  • Community outreach
  • Quality improvement
  • Research

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 have been possible without the excellent teamwork and communication among staff and physicians.
