Centers of Excellence

coe-sealThe Community Hospital Center of Excellence Program is rooted in the belief that the best way to treat Lung Cancer is through providing coordinated, multi-disciplinary care that integrates and considers the totality, the “big picture,” presented by each individual patient.

We consider the “big picture”.

A critical part of this approach is the Community Hospital Center of Excellence Program, which is designed to accelerate lung cancer detection and patient treatment by utilizing the most advanced technology available to compassionate lung cancer specialists.

Because 80% of patients receive treatment at their local Community Hospital, these are the centers where the greatest good can be done for the greatest number and we can improve the overall Lung Cancer patient survival rate.

Spearheaded by a pilot program led by renowned oncologist Dr. Shane Dormady at El Camino Hospital in Silicon Valley, ALCF is working with an elite team of specialists to create an unsurpassed paradigm for Lung Cancer treatment worldwide – a patient-centric, collaborative model to provide all patients, regardless of where they live, access to the newest and most effective diagnostic and therapeutic techniques.

This new “standard of care” established at Community Hospitals will be accompanied by a formal seal of excellence awarded by the ALCF and will ensure that no Lung Cancer patient is left behind.

The COE program reaches and serves thousands of patients a year.
