The University of Arizona Cancer Center at Dignity Health St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center

 

 

Powerful Partnership in Cancer Care

In 2011, St. Joseph’s Hospital and The University of Arizona Cancer Center, the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center headquartered in Arizona, formed an innovative collaboration to offer unparalleled cancer care in Phoenix.

This unique affiliation uses the strengths of both organizations to transform cancer care. It also provides invaluable opportunities for cancer patients, advocates, health practitioners and students to work together to create solutions to issues in oncology. We are proud to be an active research site into the causes and cures of many types of cancer and nationally recognized oncology specialists.

Our Heritage

We are one of only 41 National Cancer Institute (NCI)-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the nation. National Cancer Institute-designated centers are known for:

  • Comprehensive Cancer Care: The NCI Centers are recognized for their scientific and clinical excellence. Their focus is on providing extraordinary patient care as well as basic, clinical and translational research, prevention, education, outreach and training. 

  • Research, Treatment and Educational Programs: These centers have undergone extensive peer review, met rigorous national standards and made significant contributions to reducing the cancer burden overall. 

  • Longer Survival Rates for Cancer Patients: Studies have linked survival rates to place of service, with a mortality risk reduction and a significant survival benefit being associated with treatment at a NCI cancer center.

Other Honors

Our Cancer Center has been granted a Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS). To earn voluntary CoC accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 CoC quality care standards, be evaluated every three years through a survey process, and maintain levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.  Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation is only awarded to a facility that exceeds standard requirements at the time of its triennial survey. 

To become a CoC-accredited cancer center we are required to provide 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 multidisciplinary partnership results in improved patient care. 

Like all CoC-accredited facilities, our cancer center maintains a cancer registry and contributes data to the National Cancer Data Base (NCDB), a joint program of the CoC and American Cancer Society (ACS).  This nationwide oncology outcomes database is the largest clinical disease registry in the world.  Data on all types of cancer are tracked and analyzed through the NCDB and used to explore trends in cancer care.  CoC-accredited cancer centers, in turn, have access to information derived from this type of data analysis, which is used to create national, regional, and state benchmark reports.  These reports help CoC facilities with their quality improvement efforts.  For more information, visit: https://www.facs.org/quality-programs/cancer/coc
