FACT Accreditation Used as Criterion in Best Hospitals List

Posted in :: 2016 Volume 2 :: Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

U.S. News and World Report released its 2016 Best Hospitals List, and FACT accreditation was again used as a ranking criterion for the cancer specialty. Since 2007, accredited programs receive a point value based on their accreditation. This year, programs that were accredited as of March 1, 2016 received one point if accredited for autologous transplants and two points if accredited for allogeneic transplants or both. Of the 50 best hospitals in the cancer specialty, all are FACT-accredited. Congratulations to these programs!
