About Shore Cancer Center
In December 2019, Shore Cancer Center became a member of the Penn Cancer Network, which provides expanded access to advanced expertise and a variety of resources. Shore Cancer Center is a comprehensive, nationally recognized program that utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach to provide you with the highest quality cancer care close to home.
Since 1987, Shore Cancer Center has received accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC), by meeting or exceeding the organization’s stringent standards for patient care. Only one in four community cancer programs nationwide are qualified to earn this level of accreditation that is granted to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment and are able to comply with established CoC standards. Each cancer program must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with the CoC standards every three years. CoC-accredited cancer programs throughout the nation diagnose and/or treat 80 percent of newly diagnosed cancer patients annually.
The Shore Medical Center Radiation Oncology Department is accredited by the American College of Radiation Oncology (ACRO). ACRO Accreditation ensures that Shore’s program meets the most current and stringent standards in staffing, equipment, quality control and technical capability.
The Shore Cancer Center's mission includes a commitment to reduce stress and discomfort, thereby allowing the patient to focus on healing and recovery.
