Cancer Center of Excellence Designation Award
Created by the Florida Legislature in 2013, the Legislature intends to recognize hospitals, treatment centers, and other providers in the state which demonstrate excellence in patient-centered coordinated care for persons undergoing cancer treatment and therapy in Florida.
The goals are to encourage excellence in cancer care, attract and retain the best cancer care providers to the state, and help Florida providers be recognized nationally as a preferred destination for quality cancer care.
The Cancer Center of Excellence Designation recognizes providers that exceed service standards and excel in providing quality, comprehensive and patient-coordinated care. The University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center received it’s re-designation for this prestigious award in 2017.
