I came across this information on another website. If it has already been posted, I apologize for the redundancy, but felt this was good info to share.
Hopefully, this info may help those of you trying to decide on where to have treatment or seek a second opinion.
"Best Cancer Hospitals" -
At the "U.S. News & World Report" web site:http://health.usnews.com/health/best-hospitals/cancer-hospital-rankings/is a list-
"More than 900 hospitals are listed below in Cancer. The top 50 are ranked and the rest are listed alphabetically. Use the expanded search to locate services related to this specialty at more than 5,000 U.S. hospitals."
And also on the same web page, at this link:
"America's Best Hospitals: the 2009 - 10 Honor Roll -They're the best of the best- the 0.4 percent of all hospitals with high scores in 6 or more specialties"

You are welcome. Like I said, I found this on another breast cancer forum (Inspire) and thought I'd repost it here. Maybe it will prove helpful to others.
I've treated at 5 of these facilites (4 in the top 20):
#2- Sloan Kettering (Dissatisifed)
#3. Johns Hopkins (Impressive, unfortunately not able to help me at this time).
#14- Hospital of University of Penn - (Impressive, I chose not to treat there)
#20 - Fox Chase Cancer Clinic/Center - (Remarkable. Personal choice to not treat there).
#30 - Thomas Jefferson - (my current oncologist is affliated with Jefferson Health system)
