Cancer Diary: Top 15 Cancer Centers in the US


Carl's Cancer Compendium lists the top 15 cancer centers in the USA, as identified by the National Cancer Institute. Some interesting facts:

  • Most, but not all, are associated with a state university or Ivy League university or equivalent
  • Four of the 15 are located in California; if one is to get cancer, clearly there is a certain advantage to being a resident of California.
  • No other state has more than one top-flight cancer center.
  • Only 13 states, including California, have a top-flight cancer center (one center is in two states):
    • California
    • Illinois
    • Maryland
    • Massachusetts
    • Minnesota
    • New Jersey
    • New York
    • North Carolina
    • Ohio
    • Pennsylvania
    • Texas
    • Washington

See Carl's Cancer Compendium for links to all of them.

Blog editor's note: As a memorial to Carl, and simply because it is truly needed, MSI  is now hosting a web page, Carl's Cancer Compendium, as a one-stop starting point for all things cancer, to make it easier for those with cancer to find answers to questions that can otherwise take hours to track down on the Internet and/or from professionals. The web page is in its infancy but expected to expand into robustness. As part of this effort, each week, on Monday, this blog will carry an informative, cancer-related story -- and be open to guest posts: Cancer Diary.
