Sharp Grossmont was honored with a 2015 Women's Choice Award® as one of America's best hospitals for cancer care. Sharp Grossmont is one of just 331 hospitals to have earned the award by meeting the highest cancer care accreditation standards of the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer and other robust criteria that consider female patient satisfaction.
"It is rewarding to be recognized for providing exceptional service to women battling cancer," said Anthony D'Amico, vice president of clinical services. "Every cancer journey is unique, and our caregivers and staff have a deep commitment to excellence and work to provide compassionate support and care for all of our patients."
Thousands of cancer patients place their trust in Sharp Grossmont for cancer treatment every year. With advanced diagnostics, treatment technologies and clinical research, caregivers partner with all cancer patients, and their families, to support and develop the best treatment plan for the best outcome.
"Women have many choices when it comes to cancer care, but now they can make informed choices based on rigorous evidence based criteria. With this award designation, Sharp Grossmont joins a network of hospitals committed to a global mission to empower women to make smart healthcare choices. It's a validation to women that they are selecting the best hospital for their own care and that of their family," said Sharyn S. Lee, RN, MS, FACEHP, president of the Women's Choice Award Healthcare Division.
Additional award criteria includes excellence in clinical performance with regard to patient safety measures, high ratings from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and high ratings on the Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems Survey, which sets national standards for critical aspects of the hospital experience from a patient's perspective. According to research by The Women's Choice Award, these are all measures significant to women in choosing a hospital.
