Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Physicians Named in Seattle Met’s 2022 “Top Doctors”

SEATTLE — September 8, 2022 — Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, now Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center (Fred Hutch), the only National Cancer Institute - designated cancer center in Washington is proud to announce more than 80 physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are included in the Seattle Met Magazine’s 2022 Top Doctors list.
Clinicians were recognized across more than 20 practice areas, including in the specialties of Hematology/Oncology as well as Breast and Cancer Surgery.

“Every clinician at Fred Hutch contributes to our culture of collaboration and compassion and that allows us to provide the best possible outcomes for our patients,” said Dr. Nancy Davidson, executive vice president for clinical affairs, and senior vice president of the Clinical Research Division and Raisbeck Endowed Chair for Collaborative Research. “It is a testament to their great work that our staff are included on this list year over year.  I am honored to work alongside each one of them and am proud of their commitment to patient care.”

Honorees were chosen by their peers in King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce counties for their years of experience, competency, rapport with patients and patient satisfaction, ability to collaborate effectively with colleagues across specialties to deliver the best patient care, and other factors.

The “Top Doctors” list from Seattle Met is in its 17th year and features the best health practitioners in the Seattle area in 80 practice areas, as voted by their peers. A total of 988 providers appear on the list. This year’s list resulted from a poll conducted by Professional Research Services. Healthcare practitioners licensed by the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) in King, Snohomish, Kitsap and Pierce Counties were asked, “If you or a loved one needed care, whom would you choose?”
