Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St.

Luke’s Medical Center


Receives the 2018 Women’s Choice Award® as One of America’s Best Hospitals
for Cancer Care

Denver, CO, October 08, 2018 --(PR.com)-- Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St. Luke's
Medical Center, part of HealthONE, has been named one of America's Best Hospitals for Cancer Care by
the Women's Choice Award®, America's trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award
signifies that Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center is in the top 9% of
4,812 U.S. hospitals offering cancer care services.

A hospital must be designated by the American College of Surgeons' Commission on Cancer


Classification (ACS CoC) as one of four specific types of cancer programs to be considered for the
award. The Women's Choice Award measures hospitals on the presence of specific cancer-related
services offered onsite, infection rates and patient recommendation ratings on the Hospital Consumer
Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) Survey. The award is unique in that criteria
also include primary research about women's healthcare preferences.

“Women will search on their own for the best cancer care,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the
Women's Choice Award. “According to our own survey, nearly two-thirds of women would do their own
research vs. letting a doctor choose a hospital for their cancer care. The Women's Choice Award makes it
easier for them to make confident decisions.”

Accreditation required for the award ensures that a hospital or facility offers a full range of diagnostic and
treatment services, or provides integrated cancer care and comprehensive services.

Low infection rates compared to the national average are another important measure. Oncology patients
are more susceptible than other patients to hospital-acquired infections because of their compromised
immune systems.

Passi emphasized that Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center and all
2018 America's Best Hospitals for Cancer Care deliver on the care that matters most to women. “In
addition to our award winners' high-level performance on a national level, they provide the care that
women value most, including easily accessible services onsite to avoid multiple trips for their treatment,
which is so important to women faced with a cancer diagnosis,” stated Passi.

Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center is one of 452 award recipients
representing the hospitals that have met the highest standards for cancer care in the U.S. by the Women's
Choice Award.

“Treating all types of cancer including blood, sarcomas and solid organ, and offering first-in-human
clinical trials, Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center, in partnership
