BUFFALO, N.Y. — Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center has 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. Roswell Park is one of only six New York State centers to be included, and the only one in Western and Upstate New York.

“The hospitals and health systems selected for this list are at the forefront of cancer treatment and research,” the news outlet notes. “This list also includes cancer centers with busy research institutes, multiple clinical trials and safety designations that exceed national benchmarks. Hospitals and health systems highlighted here have invested in growing oncology departments and regional cancer centers, providing an important service to patients locally and nationally.”

In selecting facilities for the Great Oncology Programs feature, the Becker’s editorial team looks at resources including the U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex rankings and National Cancer Institute “comprehensive cancer center” designations.

Becker’s Hospital Review is a print and online news outlet that focuses on business and legal information for healthcare industry leaders.

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 2018 Great Oncology Programs list here.
