The Cancer Center of Excellence award program aims to encourage excellence in cancer care, attract and retain the best cancer care professionals, and help organizations in Florida to be recognized nationally. Goldschmidt added that Sylvester treats nearly 5,000 new cancer patients each year and the survival rates are higher than the national average.
