Another year of dedicated work to end cancer has further enabled MD Anderson to be the most impactful cancer center in its history and a world leader in the field. All 21,000 of our cancer ghters are focused on making a di erence one patient at a time—and for countless patients, for all time.
In 2015, MD Anderson once again ranked as the nation’s No. 1 hospital for cancer care and our 3,700 nurses were lauded for their excellence by again receiving Magnet Status, by a unanimous vote. Our research engine also continues to shine with Jim Allison, Ph.D., winning the Lasker Award, the nation’s highest honor for clinical medical research.
Our commitment to sharing our knowledge with the world has fostered a global network of 32 sister institutions in 23 countries. Here at home, MD Anderson’s reach has expanded through our Houston-area clinics, local partnerships and our national Cancer Network.
As we look ahead, we remain focused on driving life-saving progress within our Moon Shots Program, which has broadened to include six additional cancers in 2015. This expansion further demonstrates that our commitment to Making Cancer History has never been stronger.
