Pottstown Hospital Wins Cancer Program Award

POTTSTOWN PA – The accredited cancer program at Pottstown Hospital has again won an Outstanding Achievement Award (at top) from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons, it announced this month. The event marks the fifth consecutive three-year cycle in which the hospital was honored.

The national award recognizes cancer programs that achieve excellence in complying with commission standards to provide quality care to cancer patients. “There have been very few hospitals to earn this award five consecutive times. We are in an elite group,” hospital Chief Executive Officer Rich Newell said.

The hospital cancer program was evaluated on 34 standards in five cancer program activity areas: program management, clinical services, continuum of care services, patient outcomes, and data quality.

The 232-bed hospital at 1800 E. High St. is a unit of Reading PA-based Tower Health.
