Date:6/7/2010

HACKENSACK, N.J. (June 07, 2010)The John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center announced today that the Division of Radiation Oncology has recognized Joseph Hanley, Ph.D., Director, Medical Physics, the John Theurer Cancer Center and his team for outstanding excellence in patient safety. The team was presented with an award for their exceptional work developing and maintaining Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) quality assurance.

"Led by Dr. Hanley, our medical physics team has developed a nationally recognized program that surpasses IMRT quality assurance practice guidelines established by the American College of Radiology," said Loren Godfrey, M.D., Director, Brachytherapy, Radiation Oncology, the John Theurer Cancer Center. "Our expertise in IMRT quality assurance has helped us become a primary training center for IMRT in the tri-state area."

The John Theurer Cancer Center has been accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) for more than seven years with no deviation from safety standards and is ranked above the 95th percentile for its safety program. IMRT is a type of high-precision radiotherapy used to treat cancers that require extremely targeted therapy, such as head and neck, prostate and breast cancer. In order to achieve optimal patient outcomes, extensive safety measures must be taken by a highly-skilled radiation oncology team who follow strict IMRT quality assurance guidelines developed by the ACR.

"While I'm honored to receive this award, it is the support of my dedicated team that has allowed us to achieve such a great quality assurance track record," said Dr. Hanley. "It is important to all of us that our cancer patients feel confident that radiation is a safe, life-saving treatment option. We strive to reach the highest safety levels possible on a daily basis."

The John Theurer Cancer Center is committed to exceeding the ACR quality assurance guidelines to
