Hospital praised for cancer care

St. Nicholas Hospital is proud to announce it is one of 74 hospitals across the United States and just one of three hospitals in Wisconsin to receive the 2013 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.

The Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes cancer programs that achieve excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients, motivates other cancer programs to work toward improving their level of care and encourages honorees to serve as quality-care resources to other cancer programs.

“These 74 cancer programs currently represent the best of the best – so to speak – when it comes to cancer care,” said Daniel P. McKellar, MD, FACS, and Chair of the Commission on Cancer. “Each of these facilities is not just meeting nationally recognized standards for the delivery of quality cancer care, they are exceeding them.”

St. Nicholas Hospital’s cancer program was evaluated 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.
