Becker

NewYork-Presbyterian, with Columbia University Medical Center and Weill Cornell Medicine, was recognized in the 2016 edition of Becker's Hospital Review’s 100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs, featuring hospitals and health systems leading the nation in cancer care. Hospitals included on this list offer patients comprehensive cancer care involving teams of specialists, participation in clinical trials and personalized treatment programs. Many organizations on this list are driving forces in the fight to end cancer as we know it.

NewYork-Presbyterian is advancing research and developing therapies in precision medicine, immunotherapy and novel techniques to advance cancer care. It is home to two of the nation’s leading cancer centers – the National Cancer Institute-designated Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center and the NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Ronald P. Stanton Clinical Cancer Program and the Weill Cornell Medicine Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center.

Becker's Hospital Review has published a version of this list since 2012.

The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on recognitions received and accreditations earned. The editorial team at Becker’s examined U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, Blue Cross Blue Shield Association Blue Distinction Center designation and designations from the National Cancer Institute while compiling this list.
