How to find out about hospital cancer programs

Here are some sources that have data about hospital cancer programs.

US NEWS LISTING

The website US News & World Report lists about 900 hospitals that specialize in cancer care.  To be included on this list, a hospital must care for 254 or more patients per year.  Click here to view this list at no charge: http://health.usnews.com/best-hospitals/rankings/cancer

ACS COMMISSION ON CANCER LOOKUP

The American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer has a hospital look-up tool for the roughly 1500 hospitals that have accredited cancer centers.  This look-up tool has detailed counts of the number of patients treated according to different types of cancer.  The majority of hospitals included in this look-up tool have provided the detailed data, but some have not.  There is no information on patient outcomes.  Click here to view this at no charge: http://datalinks.facs.org/cpm/CPMApprovedHospitals_Search.htm

ASSOCIATION OF COMMUNITY CANCER CENTERS LOOKUP

The Association of Community Cancer Centers also has a web-based lookup tool with information on about 700 cancer programs.  The profiles include information on new cancer patients seen, but not on outcomes.  Click here to view this at no charge: http://www.accc-cancer.org/membership_directory/
