Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 12, 2012
Becker's Hospital Review has published its annual list of hospitals and health systems with great oncology programs. This list recognizes 70 hospitals across the country that serve as leaders in cancer research, prevention, treatment and education.
More than 1.5 million people are diagnosed with cancer each year and seek a hospital that can provide them with highly-skilled physicians, access to clinical trials, support services and care for their entire person — not just their cancer. The following hospitals and systems serve as anchors of health within their community by providing cutting-edge oncology treatment and groundbreaking research. Though these hospitals may differ in size or location, every one has expressed the vision to eliminate cancer and is working vehemently towards that goal.
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team analyzed data from prominent sources including U.S. News & World Report, HealthGrades, Thomson Reuters, the National Cancer Institute, the American College of Surgeons and the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
