HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- MD Anderson Cancer Center is once again ranked No. 1 for cancer care in the U.S., according to the U.S. News and World's report's annual "Best Hospitals" survey.

In a statement, MD Anderson's president says that it's an honor that reflects the team's commitment to ending cancer.
"MD Anderson is proud and grateful to be recognized once again as the leading cancer center in the nation, an honor that reflects our team's commitment to ending cancer," said Peter WT Pisters, M.D., president of MD Anderson.
