Advocate Good Shepherd receives cancer treatment award

BARRINGTON – Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital’s cancer program has received the Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Commission on Cancer.

Good Shepherd is one of five hospitals in the state of Illinois to receive this recognition.

“Earning this national distinction is clear evidence that our remarkable cancer team offers our community the finest cancer treatment,” said Karen Lambert, president of Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital. 

Established in 2004, the ACS Commission on Cancer Outstanding Achievement Award is designed to recognize cancer programs that strive for excellence in providing quality care to cancer patients.

A facility or program can earn the award after an on-site evaluation by a physician surveyor during which the program demonstrates compliance with seven standards of excellence established by the commission: cancer committee leadership, cancer data management, clinical management, research, community outreach and quality improvement efforts.

“We are proud to be part of such a talented team that excels in all key cancer program standards and offers patients groundbreaking cancer treatment innovation, technology and research,” said Michael Soble, cancer committee chairman at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital.
