The François Baclesse Cancer Centre has been accredited a ‘Comprehensive Cancer Centre’ by the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes (OECI), to become the 5th French cancer centre to obtain this seal of excellence.
Such acknowledgement of quality is exclusively reserved for multidisciplinary cancer institutes, integrating cancer care, research and training.
Only healthcare establishments capable of justifying a large number of medical and technical skills, including clinical research and translational research, are eligible for accreditation as Comprehensive Cancer Centres. Both excellence and quality in patient care, at each step of the care path, together with access to innovation, are commended by this label.
This European accreditation, valid for a 5-year period, is the product of an approach towards continuous improvement, which is integrated within the François Baclesse Cancer Centre’s Establishment Project. It offers the Centre international exposure, propitious to the development of new research projects and interaction, for the benefit of its patients.
