The Best Up and Coming Radiation Therapy / Cancer Treatment Centers

August 5, 2009 · Written by MDPhysics.com · mdphysicsblog@gmail.com

Imaging Technology News has published a list of the top 10 Radiation Therapy Centers “To Watch” in its July/August 2009 issue. While some radiation therapy centers (such as M.D. Anderson, Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Mayo Clinic) are well-known, well-established leaders and probably not soon to be overtaken in rank, this list of radiation therapy facilities proves that some lesser known and/or smaller centers are both thriving and ambitious–providing first-rate patient care with cutting-edge technology. Rankings were made based on “forward-thinking” (i.e. centers that are using advanced techniques and technology in patient care), innovation, operational efficiency, patient service and teamwork as well as reader nominations. The list of 10 radiation therapy centers is not ranked, however, but instead presented in alphabetical order and divided into two groups–with one group being labeled “Honorable Mention.”

Here are the centers that made the list:

  1. Allegheny General Hospital (Pittsburgh, PA)
  2. Barnes-Jewish Hospital (St. Louis, MO)
  3. Booker Cancer Center (Red Bank, NJ)
  4. Emory Department of Radiation Oncology, The Emory Clinic (Atlanta, GA)
  5. Wake Forest University Department of Radiation Oncology (Winston-Salem, NC)

Honorable Mention:

  1. Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center (Detroit, MI)
  2. Decatur Memorial Hospital (Decatur, IL)
  3. CentraState Medical Center (Freehold, NJ)
  4. Lynn Cancer Institute of Boca Raton Community Hospital (Boca Raton, FL) 
  5. Renown Institute for Center (Reno, NV)
