MD Anderson keeps No. 1 cancer ranking in US News & World Report annual survey
Date:7/14/2010

HOUSTON - The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center remains the leading hospital in the nation for cancer care for the fourth year straight, according to the annual "Best Hospitals" survey published by U.S. News & World Report.

This is the seventh time in the last nine years that MD Anderson has ranked number one in the annual listing. Since the survey began in 1990, the institution has been ranked one of the top two cancer hospitals in the United States.

Five subspecialties at MD Anderson also were singled out for high rankings, including ear, nose and throat (6); urology (10); gynecology (11) and gastroenterology (19). MD Anderson's ranking in diabetes and endocrinology jumped to number 21 this year, up from 41 last year and unranked the year before.

In a separate survey of pediatric hospitals, published by U.S. News & World Report last month, MD Anderson Children's Cancer Hospital was ranked 12th in the nation.

"We are proud to be ranked again as the top cancer center - an honor that reflects the expertise and accomplishments of our outstanding physicians, researchers, nurses, staff and volunteers, all focused on reducing the burdens of cancer for patients here and everywhere," said John Mendelsohn, M.D., president of MD Anderson. "The last decade of cancer research has yielded real benefit for patients worldwide, with declining death rates and improving five-year survival rates. To hasten our progress, the need for collaboration among the fine cancer programs recognized by U.S. News & World Report is greater than ever, and we must broaden our cooperation internationally and with government, industry and patients."

A Year's Progress

In the past year, MD Anderson has treated a record number of patients - expected to number more than 100,000 persons by September 1 - and advanced vital research fueled by new state and federal funding resources and an institutional capital campaign.
