City of Hope
The Miracle of Science with Soul™
Each year, about 10,000 children in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer. At City of Hope, children are cared for by a dedicated team of world-class professionals specially trained in pediatric cancer.
Pediatric oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, radiation therapists, pathologists and others work together to develop targeted and effective treatment plans, while professionals in psychology, social work, physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreational therapy, music therapy and school reintegration provide support to patients and their families.
Designated as a comprehensive cancer center, the highest recognition bestowed by the National Cancer Institute, City of Hope is also a founding member of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, with research and treatment protocols that advance care throughout the nation.
Our scientists work with doctors to treat both the physical and emotional needs of our patients. By attending to the individual, not just the illness, the child’s life afterwards can be fuller and more rewarding.
At City of Hope, we combine science with soul to make medical miracles every day.
