Accredited for Oncology
St Petersburg General Hospital has demonstrated expertise and commitment to quality patient care by voluntarily meeting or exceeding a wide set of stringent criteria and completing recent on-site evaluations by review teams from the American College of Surgeons (ACoS).
The hospital is newly awarded a three year accreditation for Oncology by the Commission on Cancer of the ACoS. This accreditation ensures our patients have access to the full scope of services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and support patients with cancer and their families. In addition, four commendations were received in quality data submission, prevention and early detection, education of cancer registry staff and quality improvements.

Cancer Prevention Study-3
The American Cancer Society’s Epidemiology Research Program invited men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 years who have no personal history of cancer to join a historic research study, Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3).The ultimate goal was to enroll at least 300,000 adults from various racial/ethnic backgrounds from across the U.S. The purpose of CPS-3 is to better understand the lifestyle, behavioral, environmental and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer and to ultimately eliminate cancer as a major health problem for this and future generations. CPS-3 is a grassroots effort across the country through which people advanced cancer research by participating actively in this historic research study. The American Cancer Society enrollment recruitment concluded in December 2013 with a total enrollment of over 304,000 men and women representing every state across the United States and Puerto Rico.
