Patient Outcomes & Statistics
One of the ways the Maimonides Cancer Center assesses the quality of care provided to our cancer patients is to compare our performance rates in the National Quality Forum (NQF) standards for care to the performance rates of other hospitals in New York State and the United States.
National Standard for Breast Conserving
Surgery and Radiation Therapy
Radiation therapy is administered within
one year of diagnosis for women under
age 70 receiving breast conserving
surgery for breast cancer.
National Standard for Tamoxifen or
Third Generation Aromatase Inhibitor
in Hormone Receptor Positive Breast
Tamoxifen or third generation
aromatase inhibitor is considered or
administered within one year of
diagnosis for women with AJCC
T1cNOMO, or Stage II or III hormone
receptor positive breast cancer.
