BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A cancer center in Buffalo has retained its national designation as a comprehensive cancer center, a status that brings significant federal funding.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Tuesday that the facility has won re-accreditation from the National Cancer Institute. The prestigious designation comes with a $19 million, five-year grant for research and patient care.

Cuomo calls Roswell Park a “beacon of hope” for patients and families and notes that only 41 cancer centers around the country have the designation.

Roswell Park receives some $100 million in state funding each year.
