U.S. News and World Report recently recognized the top hospitals in the country, and three mesothelioma treatment centers made the magazine’s list of best cancer treatment facilities, the mesothelioma law firm Baron and Budd reports. The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital were honored by the publication.

U.S. News and World Report looked at facilities that had substantial experience in treating rare and difficult forms of cancer. In addition, they must have provided specialized treatment to at least 294 high-risk patients. Mesothelioma is an extremely difficult type of cancer to treat, not only because it is aggressive but also because its symptoms often mimic less serious respiratory issues. Because it is so aggressive, many traditional forms of treatment are not effective.
Here is more information on each hospital that was included on the publication’s list:
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center – This cancer center was ranked No. 1. It treats the most mesothelioma patients of any hospital in the nation and is the oldest and largest treatment center in the world devoted to fighting cancer.
University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center – MD Anderson ranked second on the list, and was cited for its team of specialty physicians who use, according to the magazine, pioneering advances. The cancer center has been ranked on the list for 25 consecutive years.
Brigham and Women’s Hospital – This cancer center is the home to the International Mesothelioma Program (IMP) and uses advanced technology to treat nearly 300 mesothelioma patients annually. This is the 22nd year in a row Brigham and Women’s Hospital has made the list.
