In November 2015, the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation (ALCF) awarded Mercy San Juan Medical Center the official designation as a Community Hospital Center of Excellence. The ALCF Centers of Excellence award recognizes community hospitals for their individualized care and treatment of lung cancer patients.
As a Community Hospital Center of Excellence, Mercy San Juan Medical Center has implemented the standard of care required in the ALCF Centers of Excellence program. The program’s hallmark standard ensures all patients receive genomic testing to monitor for specific disease states and to determine potential options for precision medicine and targeted treatment. Additional standards include an individualized approach to care, patient access to new diagnostic tools and therapeutic techniques, and an emphasis on early detection and patient follow-up.
