Congratulations to M.D. Anderson

Congratulations to M.D. Anderson for regaining its “No. 1 ranking for cancer treatment in the nation, according to an annual survey released today by U.S. News & World Report,” read in the Houston Chronicle.

“For the past two years, M.D. Anderson ranked second behind Memorial
Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York in the magazine’s America’s
Best Hospitals issue.”

Well, no matter what the magazine published, Houstonians know which one was always the best.
