Lima Memorial Health System received designation as a Care Continuum Center of Excellence by the GO2 Foundation for Lung Cancer (GO2Foundation). The designation recognizes commitment to improving outcomes for those diagnosed with lung cancer by providing patient-focused and coordinated multidisciplinary care. GO2 Foundation has formed the Care Continuum Centers of Excellence program to enable patient access to standard of care lung cancer screening, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and survivorship in their local community.
“We are honored to be working with Lima Memorial as a GO2 Foundation Care Continuum Center of Excellence. Lima Memorial’s commitment will help save lives in the community and improve long-term survivorship by giving patients access to high-quality, multidisciplinary care closer to home. Lima Memorial is the example to follow,” says Laurie Fenton Ambrose, Co-Founder, President and CEO of GO2 Foundation.
The Care Continuum Centers of Excellence (CCCOE) program recognizes community hospitals that meet rigorous qualifying criteria that demonstrate 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.
“Lima Memorial Cancer Institute is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality care. Partnering with GO2 Foundation enables us to deliver even more resources to support patients diagnosed with lung cancer and their families. We are proud of our team and the impact we are having on our local community in the fight against lung cancer,” says Cheryl Nagy, Director of Oncology Services.
