Lung Cancer Surgery High Ranking

US News World Report logoLung Cancer Surgery at UMMMC earned a High Performing Center ranking from US News and World Reports! This ranking reflects on several departments at UMass Memorial Medical Center – Thoracic Surgery, Radiology, Pulmonology and Cancer. Of particular interest of note is that The Medical Center is doing a very high volume of cases. The Radiology Division of Cadiovascular-Thoracic Imaging and Division Chief Karin Dill, MD is very pleased with this recognition.

A hospital's lung cancer surgery score is based on multiple data categories, including patient survival, volume and more. Hospitals received one of three ratings -- high performing, average or below average -- unless they treated an insufficient number of patients to be rated. Hospitals that earned a high performing rating were significantly better than the national average.
