Treatment Center Directories and Resources

Find a Cancer Hospital

More than 1,500 facilities are accredited by the Commission on Cancer (CoC) of the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation as a cancer center is granted only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment and are able to comply with established CoC standards. Receiving care at a CoC-accredited cancer program hospital or facility ensures you high-quality, comprehensive care from teams of specialists who can coordinate the best treatment options available for you.

Another source of information about cancer centers is the National Cancer Institute (NCI) website. There are 71 NCI-Designated Cancer Centers in the U.S. that are funded by NCI. Most are linked to university medical centers, although some are not.

The National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is another source for finding information about cancer centers. Visit the NCCN website for information about the 28 cancer programs in the U.S. that make up the NCCN.

If you are on Medicare or Medicaid and are looking for help finding a hospital, treatment center, or doctor, you can visit Medicare.gov, Healthcare.gov, or Medicaid.gov.
