Becker’s Hospital Review has once again named The Valley Hospital to its 2017 edition of "100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs.” This is the second year in a row that Valley’s Oncology Program has been named to this list.
According to Becker’s, hospitals on the 2017 list have a reputation for innovation and expertise in treating cancer patients.
“Earning a spot on this prestigious list reflects Valley’s commitment to providing exceptional cancer care and support services for our patients,” said Ephraim Casper, M.D., FACP, Chief Medical Officer of Valley - Mount Sinai Comprehensive Cancer Care. “Our multidisciplinary team of cancer experts, nurses and other related specialists work collaboratively to help individuals receive the best treatment possible.”
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals and health systems for this list based on rankings, designations and outstanding achievement awards such as the U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, BlueCross BlueShield Association Blue Distinction Cancer designation, National Cancer Institute designations and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer accreditation and awards.
