Washington University School of Medicine

Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine has been named No. 10 among cancer centers nationally by U.S. News & World Report. The recognition is part of the overall ranking of Barnes-Jewish and Washington University, which are No. 11 on the news magazine’s 2022-23 “Best Hospitals” list, released today.

Siteman was named No. 10 in cancer care, based on a review of 914 hospitals. Health-care facilities are chosen largely on patient outcomes and other data and a national survey of physicians.

In addition to their national rankings, Siteman and Barnes-Jewish each were ranked No. 1 in the St. Louis region and No. 1 in Missouri in their respective categories.

“We are honored to be named in the top 10 cancer programs in the country,” said Siteman director Timothy J. Eberlein, MD, the Spencer T. and Ann W. Olin Distinguished Professor and Senior Associate Dean for Cancer Programs at Washington University School of Medicine and BJC HealthCare. “This recognition is proof of our commitment to providing world class care to our patients every day. At Siteman Cancer Center, we pride ourselves in delivering the most cutting-edge technologies and treatments through innovative clinical trials at one of the top cancer research programs.”

Siteman is Missouri and southern Illinois’ only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center and the only cancer center in that area to be nationally ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Since 2015, Siteman also has held NCI’s highest possible rating, “Exceptional.”

Siteman Cancer Center is one of the five largest cancer centers in the country based on the number of patients treated – 70,000 people each year, including 12,000 who are newly diagnosed. Care is provided at six locations in the St. Louis region: on the Washington University Medical Campus and at Northwest HealthCare, part of Christian Hospital; Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital; Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital; Siteman Cancer Center-South County; and Memorial Hospital East in Shiloh, Ill. Siteman also partners with Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital in the treatment of pediatric patients. The facilities all are affiliated with BJC HealthCare and staffed by Washington University physicians. The Washington University School of Medicine is a leader in medical research, teaching and patient care, and currently is No. 4 in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Barnes-Jewish Hospital and its Washington University physician partners also are part of U.S. News & World Report’s elite honor roll of the country’s top 20 hospitals that excel in complex specialty care.
