Harrison earns Gold Standard accreditation

Harrison Medical Center was recently given the CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditation for its commitment to promote healthy lifestyle choices and workplace wellness.

The CEO Roundtable on Cancer, a nonprofit organization of CEOs, created the CEO Cancer Gold Standard in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute, many of its designated cancer centers, and leading health nonprofit organizations and professionals.

The CEO Cancer Gold Standard recognizes Harrison’s efforts to reduce cancer risk, promote early detection, and provide high-quality care.

“It is a real honor for me to represent Harrison within a group of this stature, working together to focus on our companies’ efforts to improve the wellness of our employees,” said Harrison President & CEO Scott Bosch. “It is also extremely gratifying to have our ongoing efforts to help employees develop sound health and wellness habits validated.”

Harrison’s Oncology services consistently provide excellent cancer care, and have been nationally accredited since 1982. Harrison HealthPartners oncologists and hematologists bring world-class training and experience to employees as well as to our community.

That care includes annual community screening events driven by the belief that early detection of cancer equals survival. In addition, Harrison physicians participate in clinical trials in cooperation with cancer centers throughout the nation.

The work was done in partnership with Harrison’s FreshStart employee wellness program, which helped lead efforts to reduce risk by encouraging employees to eat healthy and exercise, which is complemented by wellness incentives, such as reduced insurance costs for those who participate in annual screenings and refrain from tobacco use.
