“We are pleased to be listed with our nation’s very best cancer centers,” said Thomas Kipps, MD, PhD.  “Moores Cancer Center is truly motivated to provide the best of both worlds – cancer research and the ability to bring the most advanced and most effective treatments directly to the bedside.”

According to review editors for Becker's Hospital Review, the hospitals and health systems on the list are “considered leaders in cutting-edge cancer treatment, prevention and research” and were chosen “based on clinical accolades, quality care and contributions to the field of oncology.” Ten California hospitals made the list, five of which are University of California based medical centers.

To develop the list, Becker’s analyzed data from sources including The U.S. News & World Report, HealthGrades, American Nurses Credentialing Center, the National Cancer Institute and the American College of Surgeons. After examining national rankings and reviews, the editorial team performed additional research into each hospital. The result is a list of 70 hospitals from around the country that have demonstrated “continual innovation in treatments and services, patient-centered care, and the achievement of clinical milestones and groundbreaking discoveries.”

According to the editors, “(These) hospitals and systems serve as anchors of health within their community by providing cutting-edge oncology treatment and groundbreaking research. Though these hospitals may differ in size or location, everyone has expressed the vision to eliminate cancer and is working vehemently towards that goal.”
