Memorial Sloan Kettering 1st to receive children's oncology surgery designation

New York City-based Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is the first in the nation to receive the American College of Surgeons' Level I Specialty Children's Center in Oncology designation.

The designation was developed to recognize highly specialized hospitals that specifically treat children and adolescent surgical patients with oncological diagnoses, according to a March 14 Memorial Sloan Kettering press release. The program, which is part of the ACS' Children's Surgery Verification Quality Improvement Program, aims to improve the quality of children's surgical care.

Memorial Sloan Kettering met criteria for staffing, training, facility infrastructure and protocols for care, and it participated in a national data registry that provides semiannual reports on the quality of its processes and outcomes.
