Winthrop’s Cancer Institute Re-Accredited by American College of Surgeons

The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) has granted three-year Accreditation with Commendation to The Cancer Institute at Winthrop-University Hospital.

Winthrop’s Cancer Institute was granted reaccreditation after a rigorous evaluation process and review of its compliance with the following standards – cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement.

“Accreditation emphasizes and validates Winthrop-University Hospital’s commitment to its patients and physicians to provide the resources to ensure the highest quality patient care, diagnostics and treatments, which all result in marked improvements in survivorship,” said Richard Rivera, MPH, MT, LCLT, CHE, Vice President, Administration at Winthrop.

“It is estimated that accredited programs diagnose and treat 80 percent of all new cancer cases annually in the United States,” added Eva Chalas, MD, Director of Clinical Cancer Services, Vice-Chair of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Chief of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Winthrop.

“Winthrop’s CoC reaccreditation with commendation is a tremendous achievement that we are all very proud of.”

Patients of Winthrop’s Cancer Institute benefit from the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of cancers. From stereotactic biopsy techniques for abnormalities and computer-guided systems that create a virtual “roadmap” during surgery, to the most advanced computerized treatment planning and delivery system for radiation therapy, Winthrop’s Cancer Institute is at the forefront of caring for cancer patients of all ages.
