Huntington Hospital Cancer Center Receives Outstanding Achievement Designation
Date:3/6/2009

PASADENA, Calif., March 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Huntington Hospital Cancer Center has received the Outstanding Achievement Award (OAA) from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC), which recognizes cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to their patients.

"This is an extremely important designation that illustrates the commitment by Huntington's medical staff, hospital staff and administration, to provide the highest level of cancer care available," said Howard S. Kaufman, MD, medical director of Huntington Cancer Center. "It puts us in a category shared by very few of the nation's comprehensive cancer centers."

Huntington received the award after a rigorous on-site evaluation process performed by a CoC physician surveyor. The hospital had to demonstrate a Commendation level of compliance with seven standards representing the full scope of the program. In addition they were judged on compliance to 29 other standards. Only 19 percent of programs surveyed received the OAA in 2008.

Standards evaluated included leadership, data management, clinical services, research, community outreach and quality improvement. In particular Huntington's nurse navigator position exemplifies quality service, with specially trained registered nurses guiding patients through every aspect of a cancer diagnosis. A plethora of cancer support groups are available at Huntington Cancer Center, providing compassionate care and valuable resources to the community.

Partnerships with physicians from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the University of Southern California (USC), the City of Hope Medical Center and Huntington's community based physicians ensure outstanding leadership is provided throughout the center.
