Top 10 hospitals with the most leukemia and lymphoma diagnoses

September is leukemia and lymphoma awareness month. Both conditions are cancers that affect a patient’s blood or bone marrow.

What are leukemia and lymphoma?

While both leukemia and lymphoma are forms of blood cancer, leukemia affects the blood and bone marrow, while lymphoma specifically impacts a patient’s lymph nodes. In the United States, approximately 400,000 people are living with or in remission from leukemia. In comparison, more than 825,000 people are living with or in remission from lymphoma.

Definitive Healthcare provides access to billions of de-identified all-payor claims in our ClaimsMx product. We used claims analytics to identify the top hospitals diagnosing outpatient leukemia and lymphoma in the United States.

Which are the top hospitals diagnosing leukemia and lymphoma in the US?

Moffitt Cancer Center in Florida leads the US in both leukemia and lymphoma outpatient diagnoses. with 58,222 primary leukemia diagnoses and 46,552 primary lymphoma diagnoses.  Both hospitals are designated as Comprehensive Cancer Centers by the National Cancer Institute (NCI)

There is a high concentration of total leukemia and lymphoma diagnoses at the top two hospitals. In fact, Moffit Cancer Center and City of Hope Helford Clinical Research Hospital combine for over 38% of primary leukemia and lymphoma diagnoses in the top ten hospitals on our list.

Although the top two hospitals diagnose more leukemia than lymphoma, many hospitals on our list diagnose lymphoma more than leukemia – which is intuitive considering the higher prevalence of lymphoma in the United States.  Both Moffitt Cancer Center and City of Hope Helford Clinical Research Hospital perform leukemia research and conduct clinical trials which helps to explain their high volume of primary leukemia diagnoses.
