The University of Kentucky Albert B. Chandler Hospital is one of the nation’s top “60 Hospitals and Health Systems with Great Oncology Programs” according to Becker’s Hospital Review.

The health care industry trade publication recognized UK Markey Cancer Center, whose clinical programs are integrated with UK Chandler Hospital, among oncology programs at the forefront of cancer treatment and research.

The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals for inclusion based on nominations rankings and awards they have received from a variety of reputable sources, including National Cancer Institute designations and U.S. News & World Report cancer rankings.

The Markey Cancer Center has been a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center since 2013, the only one in Kentucky and one of just 71 in the country. In 2022, Markey moved up to No. 33 in its U.S. News Top 50 national ranking for cancer care, making it the sixth consecutive year Markey has been ranked in the U.S. News Top 50.

According to Becker’s Hospital Review, organizations included on the 2023 list are on the cutting edge of novel therapies and research to improve outcomes and access to care, and have invested in growing oncology departments and regional cancer centers to provide an important service to patients locally and nationally.
