At City of Hope, we advance science to make lives whole again. As a world leader in the treatment and research of cancer, diabetes and other diseases, our scientists partner with doctors to transform lab breakthroughs into novel therapies. Made possible by philanthropy, the goal is singular: to speed treatments to patients so they receive healing now, not years from now.

Located just northeast of Los Angeles, City of Hope bridges innovative science with compassionate patient care. Patients and their families have access to our therapies that heal through integrated physical, emotional and spiritual approaches that care for the whole person — body, mind and soul. Patients can participate in our more than 500 clinical trials, and benefit from our on-campus medical, education and research facilities. With additional locations across Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, Orange and San Bernardino counties, our unique approach to care is available in many communities.


City of Hope is transforming the future of health. Every day we turn science into practical benefit. We turn hope into reality. We accomplish this through exquisite care, innovative research and vital education focused on eliminating cancer and diabetes.
