The list highlighted 60 hospitals around the country that are at the leading edge of novel treatment, therapies and research to improve patient outcomes and access to care. Only two North Texas hospitals made the list: The Sarah Cannon Cancer Hospital and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.
“This accolade further endorses the expertise of our Sarah Cannon Cancer Hospital at Medical City Plano as a comprehensive provider of leading-edge therapies from world-class oncology experts,” says Jyric Sims, CEO of Medical City Plano. “We are extremely proud to receive this recognition as a top hospital in the nation for oncology care.”
Becker’s Hospital Review noted Medical City Plano’s significance as the largest hospital in Collin County and the only cancer treatment hospital of its kind in the county, as well as its designation as the “designated Intuitive Surgical robotic surgery “epicenter” for excellence in robotics surgery.”
The Sarah Cannon Cancer Hospital at Medical City Plano opened in 2019, in partnership with Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare. The organization was named in honor of Sarah Cannon, a radio and television entertainer known for her Grande Ole Opry character “Minnie Pearl,” who was successfully treated for breast cancer at HCA Healthcare.
