Proud to Be Number One

| Comments (1)

The survey may list MD Anderson as the number one hospital for cancer care in the nation, but the honor is shared with every patient, survivor and caregiver who has walked through its doors for care.

For the fifth year in a row, US News & World Report's annual "Best Hospitals" survey ranked MD Anderson the nation's best hospital for cancer care. This is the eighth time in the last 10 years that MD Anderson has been honored with the top ranking. Since the survey began in 1990, the center has been in the top two.

MD Anderson also was ranked number three among Houston metropolitan area hospitals in another portion of the survey.

In addition to MD Anderson's honor as an institution, a number of its subspecialties were called out. The gynecology service is ranked number six in the nation, jumping up five spots from last year's ranking. Other subspecialties earning national rankings were ear, nose and throat (#6), urology (#10), gastroenterology (#22), and diabetes and endocrinology (#28).

In another US News & World Report survey, MD Anderson's Children's Cancer Hospital was ranked #15 in the nation.
