Awards and Accreditations
Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) continually strives to provide the finest healthcare services to our community. We are proud to have received prestigious recognition and certifications.
Commission on Cancer Commendation
The Cancer Program at MVH is accredited by The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons.
MVH received a Three-Year Accreditation with Commendation following the on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the facility demonstrated a Commendation level of compliance with 36 standards that represent the full scope of a cancer program (cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical services, research, community outreach, and quality improvement).
There are currently more than 1,400 CoC-accredited cancer programs in the U.S. and Puerto Rico, representing close to 25 percent of all hospitals. This 25 percent of hospitals diagnose and/or treat 80 percent of newly diagnosed cancer patients each year.
Receiving care at a CoC-accredited cancer program ensures a patient has access to:
- Comprehensive care, including a range of cutting-edge services and equipment
- A multispecialty team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
- Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
- A cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers, treatment results, and offers lifelong patient follow-up
- Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care
- Quality care close to home
American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer
Our Cancer Program received full accreditation with commendation from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.
Joint Commission Certification
In 2008, the Palliative Care Program at MVH, one of the first hospital-based programs in the region, received Disease-Specific Certification from The Joint Commission, a national deeming authority for the Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services. This certification was one of the first of its kind in the nation. The Palliative Care team works closely with patients and families to relieve the pain, symptoms, and stress of cancer.

Magnet Hospital Certification
MVH received Magnet certification from the American Nurses Credentialing Center in 2004. Magnet hospitals are excellent places for nurses to work. At that time, MVH was the first hospital in Dayton, the fifth in Ohio, and one of only 115 hospitals nationwide to receive such a prestigious distinction of outstanding nursing practices. MVH earned a re-certification in 2008. Only five percent of hospitals across the United States have achieved magnet status. An even smaller percentage of hospitals have earned re-designation.
Consumer Choice Award Recipient
From 1996 to 2009, MVH was chosen by Dayton consumers as the market leader in health care institutions for overall quality and image. The winner of the annual Consumer Choice Award is determined by consumer perception on multiple quality and image ratings. MVH has won this category for 14 consecutive years, demonstrating our dedication to giving patients exemplary medical care.
