Rhode Island Hospital gets national cancer award

Posted 6/9/14

PROVIDENCE – The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital has received the 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. Rhode Island Hospital is one of only 74 U.S. health care facilities with accredited cancer programs to receive this national honor, and one of only two in the state (the other being Women & Infants Hospital) for surveys performed in 2013. The award acknowledges cancer programs that achieve excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients.

“Each day the staff at the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital demonstrates its unwavering commitment to our patients,” said Dr. James Butera, medical director of the Comprehensive Cancer Center. “That commitment ranges from providing patients with the highest quality medical care to the most innovative clinical trials, from effective educational tools to compassionate support programs. This award recognizes that commitment and rewards our team for all of its hard work.”

The Comprehensive Cancer Center at Rhode Island Hospital was evaluated in 2013 on 34 program standards categorized within one of five cancer program activity areas: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, cancer conferences, clinical services and quality improvement. The accreditation also means Rhode Island Hospital offers access to information about clinical trials and research, cancer-related educational materials and support, as well as a cancer registry that collects data on type and stage of cancers, treatment results and lifelong patient follow-up.
