Keeping Pace with the Latest Advances in Care
Hallmark Health System offers the most up-to-date cancer care through its affiliations and close work with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the American College of Surgeons (ACOS), and the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC). These cooperative relationships provide ongoing education programs, and access to research protocols so we can continue to deliver the most up-to-date treatments and support for our patients.
