NEW YORK, March 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care at Beth Israel in New York is a 2009 winner of the American Pain Society's Center of Excellence Award. This award recognizes a small number of pain centers for excellence and innovation in interdisciplinary care, academic contributions, and involvement with the community. It acknowledges the many challenges encountered in maintaining a team of professionals able to provide outstanding care for patients with all types of acute and chronic pain disorders, both in the hospital and in ambulatory practice.

Portenoy, Chairman of the Department of Pain Medicine and Palliative Care at Beth Israel.

Our first goal is always to offer patients the best pain care possible, and this prestigious award is recognition for our efforts and for the continuing support we receive from the hospital."

This is the third year of a competition that selects six programs per year based on applications describing the multidisciplinary nature of the clinical program, innovation, relationship to the community, and contributions to quality advancement and research.
