FACT Accreditation a Criterion for 2018-2019 Best Hospitals List and Best Children’s Hospitals List

Posted in :: 2018 Volume 3 :: Monday, August 20th, 2018

The U.S. News & World Report released the 2018-19 Best Hospitals and Best Children’s Hospitals rankings. The rankings help patients and their families find medical care.

FACT accreditation is used as a criterion that represents high-quality, hospital-based care in the cancer specialty. For the Best Hospitals list, one point was given if a hospital is accredited for autologous transplantation, and two points were given if a program is accredited for both allogeneic and autologous transplantation. For the Best Children’s Hospitals list, a hospital was awarded one point if it was accredited by FACT as a pediatric or adult service provider for either autologous or allogeneic transplants. Congratulations to these hospitals!
