oops I found it..........Home Page. Very surprised that US News does not appear to have a sub-category under Cancer for Head and Neck Cancer? So it looks like u can just search Cancer or ENT?

Their model looks at cancer hospitals, or general hospitals that have cancer wings / departments. The best choices are always comprehensive cancer centers, those treat only cancers. They treat all types so a designation of what types they treat is unnecessary. They are often also a teaching and research hospital which has advantages. For instance the big ones have more clinical trials happening at their facility when that becomes a last resort, vs referring people to a different facility for enrollment, which may not be close to them. Regional hospitals that have a cancer department also treat most types, but will often refer patients elsewhere for more rare or complicated issues.
