Bachelor of Science, Healthcare Administration
Certified Tumor Registrar (CTR)
20 years of experience in the non-profit health care industry
Mindy Ansteth has a passion for improving the quality of care and outcomes for cancer patients throughout the entire spectrum of care- from initial diagnosis through survivorship. Her strong interest in cancer was realized at an early age when her grandparents both battled and lost their lives to cancer. Her early interest grew into passion as best friends, sister in-laws and a father in-law have been faced with fighting and surviving this relentless disease.
Mindy has served in a variety of roles within the non-profit health care industry in the areas of marketing, community outreach, program development, community relations and cancer data management. In her current role as Manager of Cancer Data Management for Legacy Health, Mindy manages a cancer registry team with a comprehensive database which serves as repository of valuable cancer data. The data is invaluable for cancer treatment, patient outcomes, and research studies- at the local, regional, and national levels.
Mindy is actively involved in maintaining Legacy’s Integrated Network Cancer Program Accreditation with the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Commission on Cancer (CoC) and the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) accreditations. Her involvement with various accreditation standards helps to ensure that quality patient-centered care is delivered according to evidence-based treatment guidelines at the local level.
Mindy is honored to serve on the Board of Sunrise Daisy Retreat. She believes in its mission, the passion and vision of its founder, and the importance of fulfilling the unmet need for cancer survivorship support services in our community- for survivors, families and caregivers. Mindy feels strongly that as cancer screening and treatment advances, more of our loved ones will thankfully graduate from the “cancer patient” to the “cancer survivor,” underscoring the ever increasing need for the survivorship support services offered by Sunrise Daisy Retreat.
