Middletown, NY- Orange Regional Medical Center was accredited with the CEO Cancer Gold Standard™, acknowledging its commitment to the health of their employees and their families by agreeing to meet a high standard of cancer prevention, screening and care guidelines.
The CEO Cancer Gold Standard™ calls for companies to evaluate their health benefits and corporate culture and take extensive, concrete actions in five key areas of health and wellness to fight cancer in the workplace. To earn Gold Standard accreditation, an organization must establish programs to reduce cancer risk by discouraging tobacco use; encouraging physical activity; promoting healthy nutrition; detecting cancer at its earliest stages when outcomes may be more favorable; and providing access to quality care, including participation in cancer clinical trials.
“Being accredited with the CEO Cancer Gold Standard is another indication of how Orange Regional values its employees and their families. We’re taking the necessary measures to create a culture that fosters healthy lifestyles,” says Orange Regional’s President & CEO, Scott Batulis.
The CEO Roundtable on Cancer was founded in 2001, when former President George H.W. Bush challenged a group of executives to “do something bold and venturesome about cancer within your own corporate families.”
