UPMC's network of cancer centers received accreditation by the American College of Radiation Oncology, making it the largest cancer network in the country to be accredited in radiation oncology.

Twenty of the 21 UPMC CancerCenter sites in Western Pennsylvania were accredited, UPMC said.

The only one that didn't is located at UPMC East in Monroeville, which opened in July. That center will be eligible for accreditation after being open for one year.

About 7,000 cancer patients receive radiation treatment at UPMC CancerCenter sites a year.
