Coastal Carolina Receives Top National Ranking for Cancer Screening

For the second year, Coastal Carolina Health Care (CCHC), P.A.’s Accountable Care Organization has received the nation’s top ranking for cancer screening, quality and cost savings for patients. The group received the honor in August when the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) publically released quality and cost results for 333 Accountable Care Organizations around the country.

“I think it was because of our dedicated and motivated team of doctors and staff and everybody working together to make sure much needed screening is being done on our patients,” Stephen W. Nuckolls, CEO of CCHC, told the local media. Approximately 6,500 Medicare patients were screened last year for breast cancer and about 6,500 patients for colorectal cancer through CCHC.
