Quality And Recognition
Highland leads the state in the number of minimally invasive, robotic surgeries for gynecologic cancer performed each year. The Gynecologic Oncology Program at Highland Hospital has received Disease-Specific Certification for uterine and ovarian cancer from the Joint Commission, the nation’s main accrediting body in health care. All four surgeons in the program rank in the top 10 in New York State for robotic treatment of gynecologic cancers.
Highland also ranks first in the state for the volume of hysterectomies and the use of the robotic approach in the procedure. In 2011 Highland Hospital was listed in US News & World Report’s first ever Best Regional Hospital rankings for the quality of its gynecologic specialty services.
