Three-year accreditation with commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard requirements at the time of its triennial survey. 

With locations in Mount Vernon and Arlington, the Skagit Regional Health Cancer Care Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to treating cancer as a complex group of diseases that requires consultation among surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists and other cancer specialists.

“This achievement is truly a milestone for our cancer program. To receive a full accreditation with commendation from the Commission on Cancer for both our general oncology and our breast cancer program demonstrates our commitment to providing world-class, multi-disciplinary cancer care for our community,” said Barbara Jensen, RN, BSN, MBA, Director of Oncology and Diagnostic Imaging for Skagit Regional Health.

“These results are representative of the hard work and dedication to quality patient care by our entire cancer care team,” Jensen said.
