MD Anderson ranks No. 1 in cancer care

Promise - Fall 2012

By Julie Penne

For the sixth consecutive year, MD Anderson ranks as the nation’s top hospital for cancer care, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” survey. Also nationally ranked are a number of the institution’s specialty services, including ear, nose and throat (No. 5); gynecology (No. 6) and urology (No. 23). Gastroenterology, geriatrics, nephrology and orthopedics earned "High Performing" rankings in the national survey.

In the past 11 years, MD Anderson has ranked as No. 1 in cancer care nine times. The institution has rated among the nation’s top two hospitals for cancer care since 1990, when the survey launched.

“It's an honor we share with all of our patients, survivors and their loved ones, who challenge and motivate us every day to pursue our mission,” says Ronald DePinho, M.D., president of MD Anderson.
