TAMPA, Fla. – Moffitt Cancer Center has once again been named to the 2016 edition of Becker’s Hospital Review’s 100 Hospitals and Health Systems With Great Oncology Programs. Moffitt has appeared on every version of the list, featuring hospitals and health systems leading the nation in cancer care, since Becker’s Hospital Review began publishing it in 2012.
“It is a great honor to be on the Becker’s list,” says Moffitt President and CEO Alan F. List, M.D. “This is a national barometer for those institutions that are truly seeking to put the patient first in the care they deliver. This is an ongoing priority for us, and we are pleased to be recognized among our peers.”
Hospitals included on this list offer patients comprehensive cancer care involving teams of specialists, participation in clinical trials and personalized treatment programs. Many organizations on this list are driving forces in the fight to end cancer as we know it.
This new ranking is just one of many accolades the cancer center has received as it approaches its 30th anniversary. In early August, Moffitt was ranked No. 6 on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals for Cancer rankings. In March 2015, Moffitt earned the prestigious nursing Magnet designation recognizing our nursing excellence. Serving patients from all 50 states and more than 100 countries, Moffitt boasts patient outcomes that beat the national average. Moffitt is one of 47 National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers and the only one based in Florida.
Additional accolades include the 2015 Working Mother 100 Best Companies national list, No. 6 ranking on DiversityInc’s 2016 Top 10 Hospitals and Health Systems list, and the 2016 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality.
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on recognitions received and accreditations earned. The editorial team at Becker’s examined U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association Blue Distinction Center designation and designations from the National Cancer Institute while compiling this list.
