Glossary of Terms


There is no such thing as a routine cancer, and at the OSUCCC – James there is no such thing as routine patient care.

That’s why here our dedication to safety and advanced patient care are as personalized and individualized as our targeted cancer treatments and therapies.

The OSUCCC – James has been recognized as one of the safest, most effective hospitals in the nation, according to Leapfrog’s 2011 review. Of the more than 1,200 hospitals across the country that participate in the Leapfrog project with voluntary evaluations on everything from computerized physician order entry to intensive-care-unit staffing, the OSUCCC – James is one of only a handful to receive the highest scores and the only hospital in Ohio to make the list.

Our concentrated focus on the National Patient Safety Goals and The Joint Commission accreditation standards enables our entire team to deliver the latest, most targeted cancer therapies and advanced clinical trials — all of which work together, leading to improved outcomes, faster responses and fewer side effects for patients.
