RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Becker’s Hospital Review has named The Valley Hospital to its 2016 edition of "100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs.” According to Becker’s, organizations on the 2016 list are leading the way in quality patient care, cancer outcomes and research.
“Earning a spot on this prestigious list reflects Valley’s commitment to providing exceptional cancer care for our patients,” said Dr. Ephraim Casper, Valley/Mount Sinai Director of Comprehensive Cancer Care. “I am very proud of our entire team for earning this recognition.”
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on recognitions received and accreditations earned. The editorial team at Becker’s examined U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association Blue Distinction Center designation and input from the National Cancer Institute while compiling this list.
Valley’s Oncology Program, which recently partnered with Mount Sinai Health System, provides comprehensive, patient-centered cancer care in northern New Jersey. Valley offers state-of- the-art treatment options for oncology patients, including advanced diagnostic technology, minimally invasive surgery, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, targeted therapies and radiation oncology, as well as a robust program of inpatient and outpatient supportive services, clinical trials and access to Mount Sinai’s renowned experts in the field of cancer care.
