The Hayworth Cancer Center at UNC/High Point Regional Health in High Point, NC has received accreditation as a Community Hospital Comprehensive Cancer Program with Commendation from the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Our UNC Radiation Oncology faculty there – Drs. Mohit Kasibhatla and Heather Pacholke – have distinguished themselves by receiving the Outstanding Achievement Award in connection with the accreditation process.

In addition to the cancer center as a whole, the Department of Radiation Oncology in particular has also received accreditation with highest distinction from the American College of Radiology (ACR), making it the first ACR-accredited radiation therapy facility in the Piedmont Triad area. The ACR’s Radiation Oncology Practice Accreditation Program (ROPA) provides radiation oncologists with third-party, impartial peer review and evaluation of patient care.

Thanks for all that hard work Drs. Kasibhatla and Pacholke. Congratulations!
