The MSK Difference

Leading the fight against cancer for more than 135 years

U.S News & World Report badge

Patients from across the country receive world-class cancer expertise from MSK doctors.

Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was established in New York City in 1884. Since then, we’ve provided a balance of cutting edge and compassionate cancer care, with some of the best outcomes in the industry. 

For more than 30 years, U.S. News & World Report has consistently recognized us as one of the top 2 cancer hospitals in the nation. We’re proud of the “best hospital” distinction, but we’re even more proud of our compassionate and dedicated staff.

Surgeries per year
The world’s most experienced cancer experts, performing more cancer surgeries than anyone in the nation


Leading physicians
MSK has 1,360 of the world’s leading physicians, subspecialized across 400+ common and rare cancers


Research labs
MSK has 130 labs that make foundational discoveries and innovative diagnostics and treatments

Geography should not stop patients from having access to the best cancer care.

While getting care in person at MSK might be a good option for your employees and their families in the New York and New Jersey region, traveling to our facilities may not be the best option for those who live elsewhere. That’s why we created MSK Direct. Our employee benefits model empowers employees to get everything they need from MSK, wherever is most convenient for them.

How MSK Direct delivers care to employees nationwide

MSK is committed to Health Equity through it’s pledge for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

“At Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion has never been stronger. MSK has an unwavering commitment to equality and justice for all, and zero tolerance for racism, bigotry, and hate of any kind. We are listening, learning, and moving to action in order to effect change. MSK has pledged an institutional commitment to fight systemic racism, create better employment and advancement opportunities for people of color, and become a more inclusive and diverse institution. We believe this is fundamental to driving innovation and to achieving our mission of saving and extending lives by delivering world-class cancer care, research and education.

Our dedication to delivering care and identifying treatments and cures for cancer is rooted in a mission around saving and extending lives. We strongly believe that building a diverse and inclusive culture that values and embraces our differences is essential to providing high-quality care to all our patients and their families—whether in New York City, the tri-state area, across the country, or around the world.”
