According to the 2009 "Best Hospitals" survey published by U.S. News & World Report
M. D. Cancer Center is the leading hospital in the nation for cancer care.

U.S. News ranks hospitals in 16 specialties, from cancer and heart disease to respiratory disorders.  A total of 4,861hospitals are reviewed, and only 174 hospitals score high enough to be ranked in even one of the 16 specialties.

In addition to the top ranking for cancer, we earned the most subspecialty rankings we have ever gotten, with top listings in ear, nose and throat (2), urology (9), gynecology (12), digestive disorders (23) and diabetes and endocrine disorders (41).

"This national ranking is a great point of pride among our employees and volunteers, one that we share with our patients, survivors and their families," said John Mendelsohn M.D., president of M. D. Anderson. "This year, with the national economic downturn and the impact of Hurricane Ike, the news is especially welcome as we redirect and recommit our resources to the many needs of those we serve."
