Dear OSUCCC – James Faculty and Staff,
Congratulations! With your help, the national spotlight once again shines on Ohio State’s cancer program.
U.S.News and World Report has ranked The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center –
Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC – James) among the top 20 on the magazine’s annual list of “America’s Best Hospitals” for cancer care.
Specifically, U.S.News places us at No. 20, a significant jump from last year’s impressive ranking of 25th. This is the 15th consecutive year that we have made the magazine’s prestigious list of the nation’s top 50 hospitals for cancer care. Our first appearance was in 1999, less than a decade after our hospital opened in July 1990.
The U.S.News 2013 rankings, featured online at www.usnews.com/besthospitals, are based on clinical outcomes, patient safety, national reputation and more. Rankings are based on data collected annually from thousands of hospitals by U.S.News.
Overall, our cancer program is among 10 medical specialties at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center that U.S.News has ranked among America’s best in 2013.
Appearing on this highly visible list for 15 straight years – not to mention our current ranking among the top 20 – reflects strong national recognition of our excellence in science-based clinical care. My heartfelt thanks to each of you for your enduring commitment to creating a cancer-free world.
