COCDanville Regional Medical Center’s Community Cancer Program has been providing quality care to patients since 1932. Cancer care has been important to the largest hospital in the Dan River region since it was founded as The Memorial Hospital over 120 years ago. The facility has maintained continual accreditation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer since 1948.

We have the longest continuing Commission on Cancer accreditation in the Commonwealth of Virginia!

The cancer program continuously strives to support the Commission’s goal of reducing morbidity and mortality of cancer through education, establishment of standards and provision of quality care.

gaiIn 2013, I accepted the position as Chairman of the Cancer Committee. In a relatively short time, it became evident that the medical staff and employees of Danville Regional Medical Center are fully committed to assuring a high level of care for the residents of the community and surrounding areas. I have been impressed with the educational presence of our staff through lectures, health screening fairs, and community fund raising events – all in support of cancer care for our region.

Our Multi-Disciplinary Tumor Board and Cancer Committee are engaged in providing education, excellence in service and support for cancer patients in the community. Our support continues to grow as we move forward with a partnership with Duke for cancer services. The highlight of this year is the development and implementation of a Cancer Navigation program to further assist area residents impacted by cancer.

I remain excited about our future and our challenge to continuously raise the bar for cancer support and treatment for the patients and families in our community.
