Holy Redeemer Hospital Receives Care Continuum Center of Excellence Designation

The Lung Cancer program at Holy Redeemer receives Care Continuum Center of Excellence designation from the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. It is the only hospital in Pennsylvania to receive this honored designation and is one of only 50 community hospitals nationwide.

Meadowbrook, PA – September 09, 2020 — The  Lung Cancer  program at Holy Redeemer  Hospital  recently received the designation as a Care Continuum Center of Excellence by the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer. The designation recognizes commitment to improving outcomes for those diagnosed with lung cancer by providing patient-focused and coordinated multidisciplinary care.

The Care Continuum Centers of Excellence (CCCOE) program recognizes community hospitals that meet rigorous qualifying criteria demonstrating collaborative leadership across the lung cancer care continuum.   Meeting the CCCOE criteria puts member hospitals on par with leading academic and research institutions and provides patients with access to the latest innovations not typically found in community hospitals.  The CCCOE approach results in patients receiving compassionate and timely care, as well as treatment options that improve survivorship.  

The GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer is a national organization dedicated to saving, extending, and improving the lives of those impacted by lung cancer. The designation requires a hospital to demonstrate it provides patients with access to the latest innovations in care, treatment, support, and survivorship. The Charles A. and Betty Bott Cancer Center at Holy Redeemer is the only community hospital in Pennsylvania to receive this honored designation and one of only 50 community hospitals nationwide.

“This is a great accomplishment,” says Dr. Halim El Hague, of Redeemer Pulmonary Associates. “The true credit goes to our team as we expand our lung cancer treatment capabilities, bringing exceptional care to our patients.”

 “We are proud and honored to be working with the Charles A. & Betty Bott Cancer Center at Holy Redeemer as a GO2 Foundation Care Continuum Center of Excellence. Their commitment will help save lives and improve long-term survivorship by giving patients access to high-quality, multidisciplinary care closer to home. They are the example to follow,” says Laurie Fenton Ambrose, Co-Founder, President and CEO of GO2 Foundation.

“Holy Redeemer is dedicated to providing patients the highest quality care. Partnering with GO2 Foundation enables us to deliver even more resources to support lung cancer patients and their families.   We are proud of our team and the impact we are having on our local community,” says Dr. Ho Pak Thoracic Surgeon at Holy Redeemer.
