Gold Standard Hospitals

At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, we truly value our CEO Gold Standard accreditation. The Gold Standard accreditation recognizes that MSK is as committed to reducing the risk of cancer among those who work within our walls as we are to helping people with cancer around the world.

Hospital Best Practices

Vidant Health
Health Education & Health Promotion

Starting in March of 2018, Vidant Medical Center opened a brand new cancer facility. Part of the goal when opening the new tower was that the community (including employees) would see the cancer center as a place where they can learn how to prevent cancer, not just be treated for it. We added outpatient mammography and ultrasound services and started a campaign targeted toward our employees, urging them to complete their screening exams. We also hold yearly head and neck cancer screenings which are advertised to all employees.
