On Cancer: Memorial Sloan Kettering Named One of the Nation’s Best Hospitals for Cancer Care

By Media Staff  |  Tuesday, July 17, 2012

For the 23rd year in a row, Memorial Sloan Kettering is ranked as one of the best hospitals for cancer care nationally according to U.S. News & World Report, appearing at No. 2 on the 2012-13 list. Among all US hospitals, Memorial Sloan Kettering is also ranked for excellence in gynecology (No. 9) and urology (No. 10), and is commended for high performance in the fields of geriatrics and psychiatry.  

The editorial section of the magazine highlights the groundbreaking work of our faculty in the field of cancer immunotherapy. A related New York Daily News story, featuring Department of Neurosurgery Chair Philip H. Gutin, sheds light on how Memorial Sloan Kettering’s intraoperative MRI technology is revolutionizing surgery for patients with brain tumors.

U.S. News & World Report’s rankings are determined using a complex set of factors, including the hospital’s reputation among board-certified physician specialists around the nation, the technologies and services it makes available to patients and the community, and the ratio of nurses to patients, among others.
