With five-year survival rates superior to the state and national results, you can be confident that the treatment you receive at Martha Jefferson Hospital is the best available.
The National Cancer database publishes survival data based on individual hospitals submission of data. In the table below, Martha Jefferson Hospital's five-year survival outcomes for prostate, breast, colon, rectal, lung and bladder cancer are compared with the national averages, as well as with other Commission on Cancer recognized Comprehensive Community Cancer Programs. As you see, Martha Jefferson's survival rates were higher in all these categories.
These outcomes are based on patients diagnosed at MJH between 1998 through 2002 (the latest years for which the NCDB has data).
This success highlights the vital role of the MJH primary care physicians in facilitating appropriate screenings for earlier diagnosis of their patients and our many specialty physicians who work collaboratively to provide multidisciplinary care.
Despite the favorable comparisons, we commit to continuously improve our care, enhancing both the patient experience and their ultimate outcomes.
