TAMPA, Fla. — Moffitt Cancer Center has been named to Becker's Hospital Review’s 2015 edition of its list of "100 Hospitals and Health Systems With Great Oncology Programs."
Becker's Hospital Review has published a version of this every year since 2012, and this is the third year it has included 100 hospitals.
“It is an honor to be recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review and included on this list again this year,” says Moffitt Cancer Center President and CEO Alan List, MD. “We have always been and remain committed to the prevention and treatment of cancer.”
The list features organizations dedicated to treating cancer patients as well as researching the deadly disease. These hospitals and cancer centers stand out in terms of quality patient care, clinical outcomes and research achievements.
The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on recognition received, accreditations earned and memberships held in cancer care-oriented groups. Specifically, the Becker's team examined U.S. News & World Report's hospital rankings for treating cancer, CareChex cancer care rankings, BlueCross BlueShield Association Blue Distinction Center designation, National Cancer Institute designations, and Commission on Cancer accreditations and awards received, as well as membership in the National Comprehensive Cancer Network. Hospitals on this list have several of these recognitions.
The full list features individual profiles of all 100 organizations.
