Date:5/9/2013

Abington, PA (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons(ACS) has granted a 2012 Outstanding Achievement Award to The Rosenfeld Cancer Center at Abington Memorial Hospital,one of only 79 cancer programs in the U.S. to earn this award and one of only three in Pennsylvania. Award criteria were based on qualitative and quantitative surveys conducted last year.

The CoC Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) is designed to recognize cancer treatment programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients. A facility receives this award following the on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the facility demonstrates a Commendation level of compliance with seven standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program. The facility must also receive a compliance rating for the remaining 29 standards.

“On behalf of the men and women of The Rosenfeld Cancer Center and our extraordinary hospital, we are very proud to achieve this honor from the Commission on Cancer,” said John Redmond, III, MD, director, The Rosenfeld Cancer Center at Abington Memorial Hospital. “This recognizes our multi-modality, evidence-based program through which we bring patient-centered care to our community. “

The standards that form the basis of the OAA criteria are drawn from the following areas of program activity:

  •     cancer committee leadership
  •     cancer data management
  •
