American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer  (ACOS-CoC) Liaison Report

The Commission on Cancer’s Web site at http://www.facs.org/cancer/coc/approval.html has an option to directly link to the American Cancer Society’s “Commission on Cancer Hospital Locator”, which allows users to find institutions with CoC accredited programs offering the services they are seeking within their preferred location.  The information provided gives the number of cases treated at each hospital by cancer type and stage, as well as types of cancer related services that are available. The datalink is user friendly and easily facilitates comparison of institutions.
