For 11 consecutive years, SCCA/UWMC has ranked in the Top 10 for adult cancer care.
“Without a doubt, it is because of the hard work and the commitment to patient care from our providers and staff that we are ranked in the Top 10 in the nation and No. 1 in Washington state,” said Norm Hubbard, SCCA executive vice president.
U.S. News analyzed over 5,000 hospitals for adult and pediatric care to find the best in the nation, based on critical criteria, patient outcomes, and survey results from more than 140,000 physicians.
“Every day every single employee comes (to SCCA) for one purpose and one purpose only: to take care of our patients,” said Angelique Richard, PhD, Chief Nurse Executive and Vice President of Clinical Operations. “ I’m very proud of that, and I think it’s reflected by our being in the top 10 nationwide.”
“A hospital that emerged from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” said Ben Harder, chief of health analysis at U.S. News & World Report.
The national honor follows an earlier recognition by Seattle-based magazines. More than 65 SCCA doctors were also recognized in Seattle Magazine and Seattle Met magazine’s Top Doctors lists.
The Healthcare Equality Index of the Human Rights Campaign named SCCA as a “2016 Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” and Becker’s Healthcare named SCCA one of the top “150 great places to work in healthcare.”
