The Cancer Center of Excellence designation is intended to recognize organizations that demonstrate excellence in patient-centered coordinated care for persons undergoing cancer treatment and therapy in Florida. The goal of the Cancer Center of Excellence program is to encourage excellence in cancer care in Florida and attracting and retaining the best cancer care professionals to the state. Further, the designation seeks to increase national recognition of Florida organizations (e.g., as a National Cancer Institute Designated Cancer Center). The designation of a Cancer Center of Excellence is based on a systems approach to improving the quality of cancer care. Collectively, Florida can be a preferred destination for quality cancer care.
Applications must be submitted through this online system.
