Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center's cancer program has been given the Outstanding Acheivement Award by The Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.
Earning the award indicates the facility has demonstrated a commendation level of compliance with eight standards that represent the full scope of the cancer program and, in addition, a compliance rating for the remaining 29 standards.
“Approval by the Commission on Cancer is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in diagnosis and treatment of cancer,” said Chairman of the Cancer Committee and Chief of Hematology/Oncology Kenneth Gold, MD. “Good Samaritan undergoes a rigorous evaluation process and review of performance every three-years to maintain this prestigious standing.”
The hospital is the only facility in New York state to receive this three-year award three consecutive times. Good Sam is one of just six facilities in the state to earn the award this year.
