What does it mean to be “high-tech” in medicine? How do we determine the hospitals that are truly the “best”? Opinions undoubtedly vary, and we understand that first and foremost, patients should seek the type and variety of care that they feel is right for them. When it comes specifically to technologically-advanced cancer centers, we considered two main factors: the range and quality of cutting-edge treatment options and the range and sophistication of innovative research practices. Insidermonkey experts made a list of 10 best cancer hospitals in the world.
With an initial list of more than 100 top cancer centers around the world, we researched each individually and took note of the high-tech features they offer related to research, medical expertise, and patient care. Initially, we used quantity as a general guideline and counted the technologically-advanced resources available at each cancer center. However, we also studied each institution in order to assess variety and quality of resources, as well as regional and national impact, then determined the final ranking from there.
