Provision CARES Proton Therapy Nashville is Accredited by ASTRO

We are pleased to announce that Provision CARES Proton Therapy Nashville has been accredited by the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) through APEx – Accreditation Program for Excellence®. APEx is an accreditation program developed by ASTRO that validates a radiation oncology facility’s excellence in delivering high-quality patient care.

Accreditation through APEx is a voluntary and rigorous multi-step process, during which Provision’s practices are evaluated using consensus-based standards. We must demonstrate our safety and quality processes and show that we adhere to patient-centered care by promoting effective communication, coordinated treatments, and strong patient engagement. Our facility has demonstrated those processes and continues to engage them in our patients’ care.

Learn more about how accredited facilities such as ours use the process of accreditation to benefit patients, and find additional educational materials on radiation therapy treatment on the ASTRO patient information site, RTAnswers.org.
