American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Duke University Hospital

Established and designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) as one of the eight original comprehensive cancer centers in 1973, today the Duke Cancer Institute is one of only 41 cancer centers which hold that distinction. Continually ranked among the leading cancer programs in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, the DCI is a single entity that integrates and aligns patient care and research with the goals of improving patient outcomes, decreasing the burden of cancer and accelerating scientific progress. More than 300 DCI clinicians and researchers and 500 staff members are dedicated to a broad spectrum of cancer research and the translation of that research into the most advanced patient care. www.dukecancerinstitute.org
