The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center retains its position as one of the top two cancer hospitals in the nation for the past 25 years of annual rankings released by U.S. News & World Report.
Ranked first this year is Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, with whom MD Anderson has shared the top two places since 1990. Memorial Sloan Kettering scored 100 points overall in the survey, while MD Anderson scored 99.9 points.The full list of cancer rankings can be found here.
Two MD Anderson subspecialties also were highly ranked in the national survey. In the ear, nose and throat category, MD Anderson’s head and neck service was ranked No. 5, and gynecology was ranked No. 8. These rankings are significant because they include both specialty and general hospitals nationally, not just cancer centers. Both of these specialties have been ranked in the top 20 since 1991.
MD Anderson’s urology, nephrology and orthopedics services also were recognized as “high performing” for meeting the survey’s requirements for excellence.
