Nebraska Medicine Once Again Ranks Among the Best


Becker’s Hospital Review recently released the 2018 edition of the “100 hospitals and health systems with great oncology programs” list and Nebraska Medicine holds an esteemed spot on it.

The hospitals and health systems selected for this list are at the forefront of cancer treatment and research. Like many of the institutions featured, Nebraska Medicine has earned National Cancer Institute cancer center designation.

In June 2017, Nebraska Medicine opened the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, which features a 24/7 infusion center that serves as a treatment facility and provides urgent care services. As the only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center in Nebraska, the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center comprises more than 200 specialists and researchers.

The Becker’s list also includes cancer centers with busy research institutes, multiple clinical trials and safety designations that exceed national benchmarks. Hospitals and health systems highlighted here have invested in growing oncology departments and regional cancer centers, providing an important service to patients locally and nationally.

“We are grateful to be included on Becker’s List for the 100 Great Hospitals in America in 2018 and are equally proud to be included on their list of 100 hospitals and health systems with great oncology programs,” says Sarah Thayer, MD, PhD, surgical oncologist and physician-in-chief at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center. “I consider these designations as living examples of how our team works together on behalf of the patient. Our ability to see through different lenses while treating holistically sets our team and hospital apart.”
