Where you're treated matters
Legacy Cancer Institute: Top-rated, award-winning cancer care
Legacy Health ranks among the nation's best cancer programs, according to the American College of Surgeons' (ACS) Commission on Cancer, a respected authority on cancer care. The Commission also awarded Legacy's cancer program its Outstanding Achievement Award, the only health system in Oregon to be so honored.
Legacy Cancer Institute was the first in the United States to receive Network Cancer Program accreditation from the ACS, and we are still Oregon’s only accredited network cancer program. This means you’ll receive the same award-winning care at any of our campuses, so you can stay closer to home.
Legacy Cancer Institute is also designated a BlueCross BlueShield Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers, for excellence in treating eight types of cancer.
Breast cancer care
Our performance on these important treatment benchmarks rank Legacy among the nation's best for breast cancer care. See how we compare to our peers.
The American College of Surgeons' National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) recently granted Legacy Health the first network accreditation in the region for system excellence in the care of patients with breast cancer and benign breast disease.
In addition, three Legacy Breast Health Centers are designated as Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. To achieve this distinction, a facility's imaging services must be fully ACR-accredited in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. Legacy Breast Health Center–Mount Hood is accredited for excellence in mammography and ultrasound.
Legacy Cancer Institute was the first in the region to adopt the highly targeted form of radiation therapy, breast brachytherapy (accelerated partial breast irradiation). We now have nearly 10 years of experience and have treated the most patients among area providers. See our patients' exceptional outcomes.
