Winthrop Earns Cancer Reaccreditation

The Institute for Cancer Care at Winthrop has once again received a stamp of approval by the American College of Surgeons� Commission on Cancer. Winthrop is among only 25 percent of hospitals nationwide to receive this prestigious recognition, which represents the Hospital�s commitment to upholding the highest standards in delivering quality cancer care to patients.

�Winthrop is proud to have earned this impressive honor from the American College of Surgeons� Commission on Cancer yet again,� said John F. Collins, President and CEO of Winthrop-University Hospital. �This distinction is another example of our continued commitment to providing superior medical care to every individual that comes to Winthrop for healthcare and healing.�

Established by the American College of Surgeons in 1922, the Commission on Cancer is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival rates and quality of life for cancer patients through standard-setting, prevention, research, education and the monitoring of comprehensive, quality care. Winthrop�s renowned Institute for Cancer Care was granted approval upon a rigorous evaluation process and review of its compliance with the following standards � cancer committee leadership, data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement.
