Top hospitals by prostate cancer diagnoses

Prostate cancer is the second most common type of cancer in the U.S., and the first most common among U.S. men (when excluding nonmelanoma skin cancers). Prostate cancer is typically diagnosed by a urologist.

Approximately 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Luckily, a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient treatment options exist for these patients. Those men who are diagnosed while the cancer remains localized have a five-year relative survival rate of greater than 99%.

Using claims data from multiple medical claims clearinghouses, we’ve compiled a list of U.S. hospitals that diagnosed the greatest number of prostate cancer cases in 2021.
