Top five cancer hospitals in the United States of America

There are dozens of cancer treatment hospitals in the United States, specializing in treating many forms of cancer. The best cancer treatment hospitals are ranked annually by US News and World Report, based on patient death rates, hospital reputation, and patient safety along with other medical factors such as nursing staff and technologies that are offered at the hospital. These and other hospitals collaborate with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), which coordinates the U.S. National Cancer Program and conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other activities related to the causes, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer; the supportive care of cancer patients and their families; and cancer survivorship.

The NCI has set up a network of 12 Physical Sciences-Oncology Centers (PS-OCs) linking the physical sciences to the study of cancer.

The Mayo Clinic Cancer Center is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center with a multisite presence. The hospital’s Patient and Visitor Guide provides international services to help ensure that distance and language are not obstacles to receiving world-class care.

4. Johns Hopkins Hospital (Baltimore, MD) is widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest hospitals. The hospital’s Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center was recognized early on by the National Cancer Institute, becoming one of the first to earn comprehensive cancer center status and recognition as a “Center of Excellence.” The hospital’s website provides International Patient Services for patients traveling to Johns Hopkins from outside the United States, and collaborates with affiliates across the world to improve health care globally.

5. Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center (Boston, MA) is part of a Comprehensive Cancer Center designated by the National Cancer Institute, and is also a major affiliate of Harvard Medical School.
