Bangor, Maine – EMMC’s CancerCare of Maine recently received accreditation with Commendation as a Comprehensive Community Cancer Program from the Commission on Cancer.

A Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation is granted after an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the facility demonstrates a Commendation level of compliance with one or more standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program (cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical services, research, community outreach, and quality improvements).

“Our receipt of accreditation with commendation is a testament to the tremendous dedication of all CancerCare of Maine staff,” says Allen L’Italien, RN, CancerCare of Maine executive director. “For our patients, this accreditation serves as external validation of the comprehensive care offered at EMMC, including a multispecialty team providing coordinated care with the best treatment options, ongoing clinical trials, education, and support.”
