Samaritan Regional Cancer Center (SRCC) is the dynamic cornerstone of the Samaritan Cancer Program. The facility blends the power of advanced radiation technology with the gentle touch of sincere human compassion as it serves cancer patients and their families, from the coast to the Cascades and beyond.
From the time it was first dedicated in 1995, SRCC has attracted national notice and regional acclaim. For example, the American Institute of Architects recognized the building for its light-filled, patient-friendly design and The Commission on Cancer bestowed on it the highest quality, Number 1, rating.
The cancer center takes its greatest pride, however, in the outstanding array of diagnostic, treatment and follow-up cancer services it offers. With its highly-trained team of physicians, therapists, nurses, dosimetrists, medical social workers, physicists, dietitians and hospital chaplains, the center offers uncompromising care, individualized for each patient. Samaritan Regional Cancer Center is a member of the Association of Community Cancer Centers.
Samaritan Regional Cancer Center, together with the entire cancer program, distinguished itself as one of the finest in the nation when it received its "highest quality" rating from an on-site survey by the Commission on Cancer. The commission is a multidisciplinary program of the American College of Surgeons. Fewer than 30 percent of cancer programs nationwide receive this highest designation. Furthermore, only slightly more than 20 percent of the nation's hospitals have approved cancer programs at all.
Among the areas surveyed by the commission were: program management and administration, clinical management, inpatient and outpatient care, support services, research, quality management and improvement, cancer data management, public education prevention and detection, and professional education and staff support.
The "highest quality" designation was achieved through a group effort. In addition to Samaritan Regional Cancer Center, the surveyors looked at oncology nursing areas, infusion services, rehabilitation, oncology surgical specialists, community projects and outreach. Samaritan Regional Cancer Center is also a member of the Association of Community Cancer Centers.
