Becker's Hospital Review has featured Dartmouth Cancer Center in their list of 100 hospitals and health systems with oncology programs that are accelerating innovation, discovery and greater access to care.
The hospitals and health systems included on the list are the premier providers of cancer care across the nation. Dartmouth Cancer Center, with 14 locations around New Hampshire and Vermont, is one of only 56 National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated comprehensive cancer centers in the United States. The list features oncology programs that provide novel treatments, conduct cutting-edge research, hold clinical trials and uphold safety designations to improve patient outcomes.
“Receiving national recognition from Becker’s for the outstanding patient-centered oncology care provided by the Dartmouth Cancer Center is a wonderful affirmation of the amazing and compassionate work our providers and caregivers give each and every day,” said Frank B. Panzarella, MHSA, vice president of oncology services at the Dartmouth Cancer Center. “Our dedication to patients, the rural communities we serve and the pursuit of new cancer therapies through our innovative research is integral to the way we deliver care. Our services are on an equal plane with our peer NCI Comprehensive Cancer Centers in urban areas but delivered with the empathetic touch connected with a small town. Achieving designation as a Becker’s Top 100 oncology program is a great reminder that cutting-edge cancer care is right here where you need it, woven into the fabric of our New Hampshire and Vermont communities.”
The Becker’s Hospital Review editorial team accepted nominations and examined rankings from reputable organizations such as U.S. News & World Report while compiling the list. The list shines a light on oncology programs that are at the forefront of their field.
