Douglas County Hospital (DCH) recently received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons.

The award comes as a result of surveys performed during the hospital's accreditation process.

Last fall, DCH earned accreditation from the CoC.

The cancer center not only met and maintained 36 standards to qualify for the accreditation, but the program also received seven out of seven possible commendations.
