MADISON, Wis. – Today, Newsweek announced the inaugural list of America’s Best Cancer Hospitals 2023, naming UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center the top cancer hospital in Wisconsin and 30th in the United States.

This award is presented by Newsweek and Statista, a data-gathering statistics provider, and is designed to provide patients and families with a comprehensive resource for informed decision-making on leading cancer hospitals in the U.S.

Three data sources were used for the evaluation. One was a nationwide online survey of health care professionals and hospital managers with knowledge about oncology such as oncologists, hematologists and oncology nurses. They were asked to recommend leading cancer hospitals in the U.S. Another source was hospital quality metrics with a focus on indicators relevant to oncology care. Finally, they used patient surveys that covered patients’ experiences during hospitalization. Overall, 175 hospitals were ranked.

Carbone is thrilled to be recognized on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Cancer Hospitals 2023, according to Dr. Howard Bailey, director, UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center.

“Awards like this reflect the outstanding people at Carbone,” he said. “The experts here are leaders in bench-to-bedside medicine, turning cutting-edge research into personalized treatments for our patients.”

A driving force for research, prevention and treatment initiatives critical to defeating cancer in Wisconsin and around the world, UW Health | Carbone Cancer Center is celebrating 50 years as a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in 2023.
