Maury Regional named American College of Surgeons Surgical Quality Partner


COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) has been named a Surgical Quality Partner by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Commission on Cancer (CoC).

The ACS CoC is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for patients with cancer by setting and raising standards. MRMC received a three-year accreditation from the CoC in 2022.

CoC accreditation is granted to institutions committed to providing high-quality cancer care by demonstrating compliance with the CoC standards. Each cancer program must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with the CoC standards. To maintain accreditation, cancer programs must undergo a site visit every three years. The CoC accreditation standards supply the structure for providing all patients with a full range of diagnostic, treatment and supportive services either onsite or by referral, including community-based resources.

MRH offers comprehensive cancer care at the Maury Regional Cancer Center at the Columbia Mall. A dedicated team of physicians and clinical professionals utilize the most state-of-the-art equipment available to meet the needs of each individual patient.

“It is very rewarding to be named an ACS Surgical Quality Partner. It recognizes our commitment to providing comprehensive and compassionate care to our cancer patients,” said Maury Regional Health CEO Martin Chaney, MD. “I’m proud of the work our team at the Cancer Center does to make sure our patients and their loved ones are expertly cared for in every step of their battle with cancer.”

Being a Surgical Quality Partner signifies an institution’s dedication to consistently improving procedures and approaches, while maintaining a critical eye on process at every step. The Surgical Quality Partner designation lets patients know MRMC is dedicated to quality and relentless self-improvement and has been verified or accredited by the ACS. Patients can trust that the care they receive at Surgical Quality Partner hospitals adheres to the most rigorous standards in surgical quality.

“ACS Quality programs are grounded in more than a century of experience and participation is an important measure of a hospital’s surgical quality. As an ACS Surgical Quality Partner, MRMC has shown a commitment providing the best possible patient care, evaluating that care in a rigorous fashion and dedicating themselves to continuous self-improvement,” said ACS Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer Patricia L. Turner, MD, MBA, FACS.
