The annual survey, conducted via an internet questionnaire in May 2008, was sent to nearly 200,000 households throughout the United States, including 3,504 homes in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, Livingston, St. Clair and Monroe counties. The respondent was the individual in the household who is most often the primary healthcare decision-maker. The survey results showed that the Karmanos Cancer Center was the preferred hospital for cancer care with respondents from southeast Michigan's seven-county area, as well as with respondents from Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties.

Respondents who preferred Karmanos for cancer care also preferred Karmanos for its personalized care, latest technology and equipment, best doctors, best overall quality and the best image or reputation.

"We have an exceptional staff made up of brilliant researchers and physicians, compassionate and caring nurses, technicians and other professionals who are all committed to provide cancer patients with the highest quality of care, the latest treatment options and education, as well as innovative state-of-the- science research," said John C. Ruckdeschel, M.D., president and chief executive officer, Karmanos Cancer Institute.

Ruckdeschel added, "We have only been an independent cancer center since December 2005 and we realize there are many choices when it comes to health care services. We are honored to be selected as the most preferred hospital for cancer care again this year. We will do all we can to continue our high standard of care and our vigilance to eradicate this horrific disease."

Karmanos was the preferred hospital for cancer care among 12 hospitals mentioned by respondents in southeast Michigan. Karmanos is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center that focuses solely on treating cancer -- all types of cancer -- and is committed to a future free of the disease.
