The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center has been ranked the nation’s top hospital for cancer care, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” survey. MD Anderson has ranked as one of the nation’s top two hospitals for cancer centers care every year since the survey began in 1990.
Two MD Anderson subspecialties also were ranked highly in this year’s survey. In the Ear, Nose and Throat specialty, MD Anderson’s Head and Neck Surgery service was ranked No. 5. In Gynecology, MD Anderson’s Gynecologic Oncology and Reproductive Medicine service came in at No. 7. Notably, these specialty rankings include care provided at general hospitals across the nation, not just cancer centers. The survey also named MD Anderson as “high performing” in Urology, meeting the survey’s standards for excellence.
“We’re honored by this tremendous national recognition, but the true measure of our success is the number of lives we’ve impacted with our care, research and support,” said Ronald A. DePinho, M.D., president of MD Anderson. “We owe our gratitude to the more than 20,000 cancer fighters, including world-class faculty and nurses, and 1,000-plus volunteers working every day to end cancer for our patients and others around the world. Our culture of exceptional care and genuine caring is second to none.”
