Bronxville, NY - April 28, 2008 - The Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons has granted a Three-Year Approval with Commendation to the Cancer Program at Lawrence Hospital Center. For the second consecutive time, Lawrence received this honor after an exhaustive examination during two back to back review periods. Also, in order to win this distinction, the hospital had to demonstrate a high level of compliance with a number of strict standards including: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical services, research, and community outreach and quality improvement.
Why is this important? It gives patients the confidence that they will have access to the highest quality comprehensive care. The Lawrence Cancer Care Program offers a wide range of state of the art services and equipment; a multi-specialty, team approach to coordinate the best treatment options; information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatments; access to cancer related information, education and support and most importantly - quality care close to home.
