UVA Cancer Center Named to National ‘100 Great Oncology Programs’ ListPosted: Updated:
The University of Virginia Cancer Center has landed itself on the list of 100 great oncology programs for the 5th year in a row.
The national healthcare publication, Becker, says it chose UVA based on its participation in a national cancer research network, its status as a National Cancer Institute designated cancer center, and its ranking among the top 50 cancer centers nationally by U.S. News & World Report.
UVA is the only health system in Virginia to make the Becker list.
"It’s great…it's like making the World Series year after year for 5 years in a row. It’s a fantastic honor. We’re very privileged to receive the award,” said Thomas P. Loughran Jr., MD.
Dr. Loughran is the program's director, and says the oncology program has experts on every type of cancer.
