Trinitas Regional Medical Center recently received CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ accreditation, recognizing the organization’s extraordinary commitment to the health of their employees and their families. To earn Gold Standard accreditation, a company must establish programs to reduce cancer risk by discouraging tobacco use; encouraging physical activity; promoting a healthy diet and nutrition; detecting cancer at its earliest stages when outcomes may be more favorable; and providing access to quality care, including participation in cancer clinical trials. “Trinitas has successfully fostered healthy living through important educational efforts and lifestyle change programs that have made a difference in the lives of many employees,”observes Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and CEO.
As just one of eight healthcare facilities in New Jersey to receive theAmerican College of Surgeons National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), Trinitas Regional Medical Center has been recognized for its voluntary commitment to providing the best in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and its compliance with establishedNAPBC standards.

Both theDiagnostic Imaging Center and the Trinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center have received this accreditation for cancer diagnosis and cancer care services.

“When theTrinitas Comprehensive Cancer Center opened its doors in 2005, it did so with the commitment to providing superior, compassionate care to those who use our many services,” explains Barry Levinson, MD, Medical Director of the center. “We approach each patient with the utmost of care and direct our attention to giving them not only the best care and treatment but also the best quality of life as they survive cancer. Each day, we strive to demonstrate that we are thoroughly dedicated to the best of care and to the best of life for our patients. The NAPBC accreditation
underscores that commitment and encourages us to maintain the very highest standards for our patients.” eived the Mastery of Breast Surgery designation from the American Society of Breast Surgeons Board of Directors, works closely with patients at the Comprehensive Cancer Center. “We support our patients with the latest in cancer treatment including patient-oriented programs such as multidisciplinary teams that explore new treatment options, access to a patient navigator and clinical trial information, and ongoing quality indicator data collection,” he notes. “We all work together to achieve the best possible individual outcomes.” A major quality initiative at the Cancer Center involves a systemwide evaluation of the benefits, risks and efficient management of the increasing number of oral oncology drugs that have become available. These drugs offer a more convenient and less invasive treatment option, but they require a new model for patient education, monitoring, communications and support. Trinitas is well ahead of this curve with the development of in-depth 14-step program that features safeguards, intensive follow-up and a comprehensive system of checks and balances.
