On Top Again
For the fourth time in the past six years, MD Anderson is the nation’s top hospital for cancer care according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “America’s Best Hospitals” survey.
MD Anderson has been ranked as one of the top two hospitals for cancer care every year since the survey began 19 years ago.
“I am very proud that MD Anderson has again been recognized for its outstanding patient care, innovative clinical trials program, nursing, supportive services, community outreach and research,” says MD Anderson President John Mendelsohn, M.D. “Every day, our faculty, staff and volunteers live our mission to eradicate cancer, and this honor recognizes their relentless efforts. We share this with all of our courageous patients who are both our inspiration and driving force in Making Cancer History®.”
MD Anderson specialties earning additional national rankings also include ear, nose and throat (4); urology (9); gynecology (16); and pediatrics (21).
The U.S. News & World Report rankings are based on a reputation survey of board-certified physicians around the nation, patient discharge data and a mix of care-related factors such as nurse-to-patient ratios, current technologies and services available to patients and the community.
