Saint Anne’s Hospital is one of 412 award recipients representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for cancer care in the U.S. by the Women’s Choice Award. The award signifies that Saint Anne’s is in the top 8% of 4,789 U.S. hospitals offering cancer care services.

A hospital must be designated by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer Classification as one of four specific types of cancer programs to be considered for the award. The Women’s Choice Award measures hospitals on the presence of specific cancer-related services offered onsite, infection rates, and patient recommendation ratings on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey. The award is unique in that criteria also include primary research about women’s healthcare preferences.

“For more than 40 years, Saint Anne’s Hospital has offered cancer care services that meet or exceed national standards,” said Carole Billington, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, the hospital’s chief operating officer and chief nursing officer. “Not only do our advanced clinical services enable us to care for a wide range of cancer diagnoses, but our highly trained physicians, oncology-certified nurses, and support professionals work with patients through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship to ensure the best possible outcomes, with compassion. We are proud to once again accept the Women’s Choice Award as a testament to our team’s expertise and our patients’ confidence in their care.”

“Women will search on their own for the best cancer care,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “According to our own survey, nearly two-thirds of women would do their own research vs. letting a doctor choose a hospital for their cancer care. The Women’s Choice Award makes it easier for them to make confident decisions.”

Accreditation required for the award ensures that a hospital or facility offers a full range of diagnostic and treatment services, or provides integrated cancer care and comprehensive services. Accreditation also signifies that the facility participates in cancer-related clinical research.
