Memorial Sloan Kettering Ranks First in the Nation for Cancer Care


Memorial Sloan Kettering is proud and honored to announce it has been named the number one hospital for cancer care in the nation, according to U.S. News & World Report in its annual listing of Best Hospitals. Since the inception of the revered list 25 years ago, MSK has held either the first or second spot each year.

In addition to its ranking for cancer care, MSK was ranked number four for gynecology, number nine for urology, and number 28 for ear, nose, and throat, and was recognized as high performing in the fields of gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery and geriatrics. Just three percent of the nearly 5,000 hospitals analyzed earned national ranking in even one specialty.

Members of our dedicated staff, MSK President and CEO Craig Thompson, and patients are available to share their thoughts on our first-place status and what makes MSK unique.
