ROS At A Glance
We Care …
Our physicians, nurses and broad support staff make every effort to understand what cancer really means to each individual patient and family. We hope to ease the fear of cancer through education, a strong commitment to pain management, and emotional as well as spiritual support. We also encourage all patients to be direct participants in their treatment-related decisions, thus promoting a sense of control. We strive to deliver quality cancer care at all levels throughout a patient’s ROS experience. In addition, we provide compassionate care in an environment that respects and maintains a patient’s dignity at all times. It is through the efforts of many that the fear associated with cancer can be replaced with understanding, acceptance and hope.

The Joint Commission (JC) sets the standard for quality in healthcare for both hospitals and outpatient facilities. In 1995, we voluntarily sought a challenging and comprehensive evaluation by the JC. ROS proved the highest level of patient care and safety by meeting the highest and most rigorous performance standards. Since 1995, ROS has maintained JC accreditation by undergoing a rigorous review every three years. The JC is clearly the gold standard by which healthcare organizations are measured. ROS consistently demonstrates its commitment to quality and safety through compliance with the guidelines set forth by the JC. For more information about the JC, please visit www.jointcommission.org.
