Roswell Park Cancer Institute has once again been named to Becker's Hospital Review's 100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs, an annual list of centers that are national leaders in patient care, cancer outcomes and research.
"The hospitals featured on this list have a reputation for innovation and expertise in treating cancer patients," the news outlet noted. "Many of the hospitals and health systems included on this list incorporate the latest technology to improve outcomes into their programs while also ensuring a superior patient experience."
In selecting facilities for the Great Oncology Programs feature, the Becker's editorial team analyzed data from sources including the U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, BlueCross BlueShield Association Blue Distinction Cancer designation, National Cancer Institute designations and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer accreditation and awards.
"Roswell Park Cancer Institute was the nation's first cancer center, founded in 1898," Becker's noted in its description of Roswell Park, which went on to highlight other key RPCI accomplishments from recent years.
Roswell Park has appeared on every version of this list since Becker's Hospital Review initiated it as "30 Hospitals With Great Oncology Programs" in 2010. See the full 2017 Great Oncology Programs list HERE.
The mission of Roswell Park Cancer Institute is to understand, prevent and cure cancer. Founded in 1898, RPCI is one of the first cancer centers in the country to be named a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center and remains the only facility with this designation in Upstate New York.
RPCI is a member of the prestigious National Comprehensive Cancer Network, an alliance of the nation's leading cancer centers; maintains affiliate sites; and is a partner in national and international collaborative programs.
