Texas Oncology–McKinney receives ASTRO’s Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx®)

April 05, 2021

Texas Oncology–McKinney has successfully met the standards of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx®).

APEx is an accreditation program developed by ASTRO that validates a radiation oncology facility’s excellence in delivering high-quality patient care.

"In my mind, APEx accreditation is the most rigorous radiation accreditation process available,” said Anand Shivnani, M.D., radiation oncologist, Texas Oncology–McKinney. “This recognition gives our patients peace of mind that the team taking care of them is committed to the highest standards of quality assurance, safety processes, and treatment standards possible."

This recognition gives our patients peace of mind that the team taking care of them is committed to the highest standards of quality assurance, safety processes, and treatment standards possible."

Accreditation through APEx is a voluntary and rigorous multi-step process during which a facility’s practices are evaluated using consensus-based standards. The center must demonstrate its safety and quality processes and demonstrate that it adheres to patient-centered care by promoting effective communication, coordinated treatments, and strong patient engagement.
