Program in women’s oncology earns accreditation

Posted 12/30/13

The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer recently announced that the Program in Women’s Oncology at Women & Infants Hospital of Rhode Island earned a three-year accreditation with commendation.

The announcement came as a result of a successful site visit in late September, according to Margaret M. Steinhoff, chair of the hospital’s Cancer Committee.

“This accreditation with commendation is testimony to the quality of care available for women with cancer at the Program in Women’s Oncology, and the dedication and passion of the staff working here,” Steinhoff said.

The Commission on Cancer will not even send a team out to evaluate a program if it does not meet certain criteria, including having a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care that includes diagnostic imaging, radiation oncology services, systemic therapy services, clinical trials, psychosocial support services, rehabilitation services and nutrition services.

“Being accredited by such a respected national organization tells women across the region that Women & Infants is the place to come for the best possible care for gynecologic or breast cancer,” said Cornelius “Skip” Granai III, director of the Program in Women’s Oncology. “We have access to the full scope of services required to diagnose, treat, rehabilitate and support patients with cancer and their families.”
