The University of Toledo Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center was named one of the 2015 top 100 hospitals and health systems with great oncology programs by Becker’s Hospital Review.

To be recognized on this list, a hospital must be a leader in cancer patient care, be influential in cancer education and prevention efforts, and have received other recognition for its accreditations, clinical expertise, care teams and clinical outcomes.

Beckers - oncology“We are proud to be recognized as one of the top cancer centers in the United States,” said Allen Seifert, administrative director of the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center. “The recognition reaffirms the passion, leadership and achievements of our team in delivering compassionate, high-quality health care to the people of the communities we serve.”

Seifert added that the awards and recognition received year after year by the center are a great reflection of the staff’s commitment to quality care.

In addition to making the Becker’s Hospital Review Top 100 list, the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center received the 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award from the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer. UTMC was one of only 20 accredited cancer programs in the United States during that survey period to be recognized for excellence in providing quality care to patients with cancer.

The center also was awarded a three-year commendation for being a Teaching Hospital Cancer Program, meaning it met the requirements in association with a medical school, it offers a full range of diagnostic and treatment services on campus, and it trains residents in multiple disciplines.

“We strive to provide the best possible experience and outcome in cancer diagnosis, treatment and support. In the few years since our opening [in 2013], much has been accomplished through the Dana Cancer Center,” Seifert said.
