Our Vision

City of Hope Campus Plan

Founded in 1913, City of Hope is marked by a legacy of compassion that is felt by every patient and family who walks through our doors and by every clinician, researcher, volunteer and staff member who works on our campus and in our clinics.
Created initially by a group of volunteers committed to providing care and dignity for tuberculosis patients, the institution shifted its focus to cancer in the 1950s when tuberculosis waned as a threat.

Since then City of Hope has grown into a national leader in cancer and one of the most productive high-impact biomedical research enterprises in the areas of cancer and diabetes. City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center.

As City of Hope moves into its second century, we are ready to answer the call to bring leading-edge, personalized care and scientific innovation to greater numbers of people. The transformation of our campus plays a vital role in allowing us to serve more patients and also in shaping the future of cancer and diabetes care. By broadening access and increasing capacity for scientific discovery and clinical research, we’re expanding hope for the future of health.

Community Commitment

Duarte and neighboring Irwindale have been home to City of Hope ever since a group of volunteers set up two large tents on a plot of empty desert to treat tuberculosis patients more than 100 years ago. While we have changed quite a bit since 1913, our bond to our home community remains as strong as ever.

Supporting our communities is fundamental to City of Hope’s mission. Working with a variety of local partners and stakeholders, we provide millions of dollars a year to programs and activities that serve our region. Among our many community-serving initiatives, we work to:

• Promote health and wellness
• Address health disparities and access to care
• Advance disease prevention and education
• Celebrate diversity and inclusion
• Educate and train young people to develop a pipeline for tomorrow’s health-care leaders
Overall, City of Hope participates in more than 200 community outreach events and programs.
