Top Ranked Hospitals for Cancer

Top Ranked Hospitals for Cancer

U.S. News and World Report rankings for the Top Ranked US Cancer Hospitals for 2012-2013  have been released.

More than 900 cancer hospitals are listed. All are experienced in treating difficult cases—a hospital is listed only if at least 254 inpatients in need of high level of expertise were treated there in 2008, 2009, and 2010. The top 50 hospitals are ranked, based on score. The rest are listed alphabetically.  Reputation among specialists, survival rates, success in keeping patients safe, patient volume are among the criteria used to evaluate the cancer hospitals.

*** CAVEAT:  Regardless of which hospital center you choose, even if it’s a top ranked one, it’s important to get a second opinion or even a 3rd or a 4th.***
