Erie Shores HealthCare has been recognized for being among the top-performing and most improved cancer programs in the province.

The hospital runs the program in partnership with Windsor Regional Hospital and was recognized by Ontario Health in the annual Performance Award recognition’s.

“This award is strong recognition of the importance we see in providing the people of our community with prompt access to care when they need it most. Nothing can be more intimidating than receiving a possible diagnosis of “cancer” and then being made to wait, and our surgeons do their best to minimize this struggle whenever possible,” said Dr. Ross Moncur, Chief of Staff.

ESHC’s award is for the performance indicator ‘Cancer Surgery Referral to Consult’ – Percentage of patients seen within target for all priority categories for the 2019/20 year, and for exceeding the provincial annual improvement target.

“The ESHC perioperative teams, physicians and regional partners have worked very hard to make these improvements. The result is better, faster service, closer to home for those patients in the Erie Shores area,” said Suzanne Webster, Operations Manager for Perioperative Services and Diagnostic Imaging.

The annual awards are taking place on Monday, December 7th and is being held virtually this year due to COVID-19.
