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.
