Voters in the Star-Telegram 2017 Fort Worthy Awards have named Moncrief Cancer Institute the top cancer center in Tarrant County.

Readers selected Moncrief as the winner of the Health and Wellness category, after online voting ended June 12. Winners were recognized at an August 24th awards ceremony in the Fort Worth Stockyards.   

“We're honored by the support from hundreds of readers, patients and survivors who voted for us,” said Keith Argenbright, MD, Moncrief Cancer Institute Director. “Because our mission is to provide free cancer screenings to the underinsured, it inspires us to know people acknowledge and appreciate our efforts.”

Moncrief also offers screenings and personalized exercise, nutrition and support services, free of charge, to anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer, either aboard a $1.1 million Mobile Cancer Survivor Clinic or at the institute’s headquarters in the Fort Worth Medical District.    

The Fort Worthy Awards give Tarrant County readers a chance to select top contenders from nearly 180 categories, according to the Star-Telegram’s Trayce Moore. 

“With thousands of people voting, I was personally surprised at how responsive readers were in trying to spread the word about their favorite medical centers, businesses and leaders in the community,” Moore said. “It’s a tribute to the fantastic cancer services available to Tarrant County residents.”
