Hackensack University Med Center's prostate cancer program secures recertification

By ,

Hackensack University Medical Center’s prostate cancer program has been recertified by the independent nonprofit Joint Commission.

Recertification can be sought every threeyears. Such certification means the hospital, part of Hackensack Meridian Health’s network, is meeting standards of excellence in safety and treatment with its prostate cancer program.

The Joint Commission team reviewed inpatient and outpatient data, and gave commendations to the prostate cancer team in areas such as interdisciplinary team engagement, data analysis, team member education and competencies, and cooperation between care areas.

“I want to commend our team members for achieving this important recertification,” said Dr. Ihor Sawczuk, president of Hackensack University Medical Center. “They fully embody our commitment to provide excellent clinical treatment and truly compassionate care.”
