Top 25 cancer centers by total physicians
Cancer treatment has helped advance patient survival rates over the last few decades.
And cancer centers provide sophisticated patient care through healthcare technology such as artificial intelligence (AI) that is used to help diagnose cancer and personalized medicine that can create a more effective treatment path.
The Definitive Healthcare HospitalView product tracks more than 1,000 hospitals recognized by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) for data-driven performance measures that improve care quality for patients undergoing cancer treatment.
This Healthcare Insight reviews the top cancer centers based on the total number of affiliated physicians at the hospital. Data used in this analysis is from the October 2022 Medicare Cost Report release.
