The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is one of the world’s most respected centers devoted exclusively to cancer patient care, research, education and prevention. It is located in central Houston in the Texas Medical Center.
MD Anderson was created in 1941 as part of The University of Texas System. The institution is one of the nation’s original three comprehensive cancer centers designated by the National Cancer Act of 1971 and is one of 68 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers today.
U.S. News & World Report’s "Best Hospitals" survey has ranked MD Anderson as one of the nation’s top two cancer centers every year since the survey began in 1990.
