Aurora Health Care sees nearly 7,000 new cancer cases per year. These patients are cared for in 23 Medical Oncology sites, 10 hospitals’ radiation oncology departments, and 14 Aurora hospitals’ cancer programs. Twelve of the fourteen hospital-based cancer programs have been accredited by the American College of Surgeons (the other two pending in 2012) and all have been designated as outstanding cancer programs, the highest award given by the Commission on Cancer.

There are seven breast centers that have achieved accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).
