According to the American Cancer Society, more than one million people in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer each year. INTEGRIS Baptist Medical Center and INTEGRIS Cancer Institute are among an elite group of 331 hospitals nationwide, who have earned the 2015 Women’s Choice Award for cancer.
“We understand that women make the majority of the health care related decisions in their families, so it is imperative that we earn and retain their trust,” says Bruce Lawrence, president and chief executive officer of INTEGRIS Health. “The Women’s Choice Award indicates that INTEGRIS’ cancer program has been reviewed and compared to programs of other facilities before being awarded this designation. It provides confidence that choosing INTEGRIS is the right choice for their cancer care needs.”
INTEGRIS received the prestigious honor by meeting cancer care accreditation standards of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer; as well as for their excellence in clinical performance with regard to patient safety measures, and for their high recommendation rate.
“Women have many choices when it comes to cancer care, but now they can make informed choices based on rigorous evidence based criteria. As a cancer survivor who faced a challenging journey to recovery, I wish I had the Women’s Choice Award as a resource to spare me unnecessary fret and error,” said Delia Passi, the founder and chief executive officer of the Women’s Choice Award. “When faced with cancer you owe it to yourself and your family to get the best treatment possible.”Untitled-web
