Seattle Magazine Names 46 Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Top Doctors

SEATTLE — Feb. 22, 2017 — The March 2017 issue of Seattle Magazine features 46 Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) oncologists and specialists as Top Doctors. Physicians from SCCA’s three world-class partner organizations—Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle Children’s and UW Medicine—as well as two of its clinical care sites, a medical oncology clinic at EvergreenHealth in Kirkland, Washington and the medical and radiation oncology clinics at UW Medicine/Northwest Hospital & Medical Center appear prominently throughout the list.

“Our physicians provide extraordinary cancer care to patients, and it is truly gratifying to have their work recognized as they continue to work toward a world without cancer,” said Dr. Nancy Davidson, president and executive director of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

This year’s complete list, compiled by Castle Connolly Medical Ltd. includes 412 doctors in more than 66 specialties, all nominated by their colleagues for providing exceptional patient care. More than 8,700 nominations were submitted by more than 2,700 physicians. Following a review of all nominations, Castle Connolly identified more than 1,000 Top Doctors with primary offices located in King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties, to select and create the ‘elite subset’ of 412 providers that appear in Seattle Magazine’s March issue.

“We are so proud to see our physicians recognized by Seattle Magazine as Top Doctors,” said Dr. Marc Stewart, medical director and vice president of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. “Nomination of these doctors is a testament to the outstanding care, communication and listening skills they provide to our patients in partnership with care teams across our entire Alliance.”

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance physicians earned the majority of nominations in the Cancer Specialties category, totaling more than 50 percent of nominations in that combined category. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance doctors swept four cancer specialty categories: hematology, gynecologic oncology, pediatric hematology, and radiation oncology.
