Lutheran Medical Center connection

For more than 30 years, Lutheran Medical Center has been honored with Accreditation by American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer. And while we are proud of our history of exceptional outcomes, we are also constantly focused on new treatments and improving care in the future. In fact, we are the top center for clinical trials with the Colorado Cancer Research Program.

In addition, we are the first Colorado hospital to earn accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for our Breast Care Center. Lutheran joins only 203 other hospitals nationwide, which have earned this accreditation.

Our program is one of 75 in the nation and one of three in Colorado to receive the Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award.
