City of Hope is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of people with cancer, diabetes and other serious illnesses. Our mission is to transform the future of healthcare by turning science into a practical benefit, hope into reality. We accomplish this by providing outstanding care, conducting innovative research and offering vital education programs focused on eliminating these diseases.
Founded in 1913, City of Hope is a comprehensive cancer center, as designated by the National Cancer Institute. Our role as leaders in patient care, basic and clinical research and the translation of science into tangible benefit is widely acknowledged. Our alliance with the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) has greatly enhanced our ability to provide personalized treatments for each of our patients while accelerating cures for cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Our community includes research associates, scientists, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals, graduate students, fundraising specialists, marketing professionals, volunteers and an extensive support staff. We are united by our desire to find cures, save lives and transform the future of health. Every discovery we make and every new treatment we create gives people the chance to live longer, better and more fully.
City of Hope remains committed to our tradition of exceptional care for patients, families and communities. Each day, we live out our credo: "There is no profit in curing the body if, in the process, we destroy the soul." — Samuel H. Golter, early leader of City of Hope.
