Greenwich, CT (Sept. 19, 2017) – For the fourth consecutive year, Greenwich Hospital has received the 2017 Women’s Choice Award as one of America’s best hospitals for cancer care.

“Greenwich Hospital takes pride in providing the highest level of cancer care close to home,” said Kristina Capretti, RN, MSN, program director for oncology services. “Our nationally recognized team of surgeons, physicians, nurses and other clinicians help patients navigate the challenging journey from diagnosis and treatment to recovery and survivorship.”

Outpatient and inpatient services are available at various locations, including the main hospital, the Breast Center and the Bendheim Cancer Center.

The Women’s Choice Award winners represent hospitals that have been accredited by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer for meeting the highest standards of cancer care.

Additional criteria looked at whether a hospital offered on-site chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hospice and cancer research activities.
