The Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute has done what no other center in the Upstate has. They've earned accreditation from the American College of Radiology (ACR).

The Institute has been awarded a three-year term of accreditation in radiation oncology. It's the careful use of high-energy radiation to treat cancer. A radiation oncologist may use radiation to cure cancer or to relieve a cancer patient's pain.

"We see this as a yet another validation of our many years of commitment to excellence and to a continuous process of improving the quality of the cancer treatments which we provide for our patients," said Dr. Drew Monitto, Gibbs radiation oncologist.

The ACR seal of accreditation means the health facility offers the highest level of quality and patient safety. These facilities must meet specific Practice Guidelines and Technical Standards developed by ACR. They also go through a peer-review evaluation by board-certified radiation oncologists and medical physicists who are experts in the field.

"As the only Radiation Oncology treatment center in the Upstate to have thus far achieved this designation, we will not rest but will remain committed to fighting this disease through research, innovation and high quality patient-centered care," said Dr. Monitto.

The Gibbs Cancer Center & Research Institute has sites in Spartanburg, Gaffney and Greer.
