In April 2009, Randolph Cancer Center received the Hematology & Oncology Practice Excellence (HOPE) Award for Leadership Excellence by Hematology & Oncology News & Issues Magazine. This award signifies Randolph Cancer Center as a leader, both administratively and clinically, among the cancer center practices of its size in the country.
The HOPE Awards recognize and advance excellence, and help practices gauge its success. In cooperation with corporate partners and sponsors, the awards are a part of a three year initiative designed to encourage the development of practice standards of excellence in community-based cancer treatment centers. The three main goals of the initiative are to identify measurable business standards, quantify a set of criteria within each standard that can be applied across practice and recognize the practices that exhibit excellence among its peers.
