In 2015, more than 1.6 million people in the United States faced a cancer diagnosis. At MSK, we’re leading the way in setting standards for the delivery and quality of cancer care nationwide.
To enhance care delivery and extend our expertise to more patients, in 2015 we embarked on a bold expansion of our facilities and implemented powerful new technologies that more efficiently and precisely attack cancer.
MSK is the nation’s first cancer hospital. That legacy continues to drive our focus on generating meaningful discoveries that change our understanding of cancer as a disease and applying those insights to improve the effectiveness of cancer treatment. MSK’s 2015 Annual Report takes improving outcomes as a broad theme because it touches every aspect of our work, from the bedside to the laboratory.
In this report, we introduce you to a range of innovative approaches we’re taking to make care as accessible, coordinated, cost effective, and evidence based as possible to achieve the best outcomes for our patients.
