More accolades for Roswell Park.

Roswell Park Cancer Institute has once again been named to Becker’s Hospital Review’s 100 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs, an annual list of centers that are national leaders in patient care, cancer outcomes and research.

In selecting facilities for the Great Oncology Programs feature, the Becker’s editorial team analyzed data from sources including the U.S. News & World Report cancer care rankings, CareChex cancer care rankings, BlueCross BlueShield Association Blue Distinction Cancer designation, National Cancer Institute designations and American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer accreditation and awards.

“Roswell Park Cancer Institute was the nation’s first cancer center, founded in 1898,” Becker’s notes in its description of Roswell Park, which goes on to highlight other key Institute accomplishments from recent years.
