2013 Community Health Needs Assessment Report

Understanding our community’s views about health needs and how to meet those is essential to City of Hope’s mission of transforming the future of health. City of Hope conducts a Community Health Needs Assessment every three years and continually collaborates with a broad range of community partners in order to focus our health improvement efforts on the top priorities of those we serve.

We invite your feedback on the Community Health Needs Assessment Report. Please send your comments and ideas for advancing the well-being of our community to Annette Mercurio, MPH, MCHES, Department of Supportive Care Medicine, amercurio@coh.org.
 
 

2014 – 2017 Community Benefit Implementation Strategy

Although City of Hope is a destination for patients from around the world, we also serve our community, and we believe we serve it well. We have a healthy history of rich programs with community partners; programs that continue to thrive and grow. Because cancer and diabetes are complex, multifaceted and all-too-common in our catchment area, partnerships for community benefit are an integral part of our mission.
 
We invite your feedback on the Community Benefit Implementation Strategy. Please send your comments and ideas for advancing the well-being of our community to Nancy Clifton-Hawkins, M.P.H., M.C.H.E.S., Department of Supportive Care Medicine, nchawkins@coh.org.

  • When 25-year-old Angelina Mattos was diagnosed with Stage 4 oral cancer earlier this year, she learned that her only hope of survival was through the removal of her tongue, a surgery that leaves people without the ability to talk or eat normally, sometimes permanently ending their ability to speak. After hearin...
  • Two years ago, Joselyn Miller and her family sat together as stem cells from her brother’s bone marrow were infused into her – a precious gift of life that the family is excited to have the chance to pass to another patient in need. Today, the stem cell recipient is healthy. Her 23-year-old son Rex, who […...
  • Even as the overall rate of oral cancers in the United States steadily declines, the rate of tongue cancer is increasing — especially among white females ages 18 to 44. An oral cancer diagnosis, although rare, is serious. Only half of the people diagnosed with oral cancer are still alive after five years, accor...
  • Sometimes cancer found in the lungs is not lung cancer at all. It can be another type of cancer that originated elsewhere in the body and spread, or metastasized, to the lungs through the bloodstream or lymphatic system. These tumors are called lung metastases, or metastatic cancer to the lungs, and are not the...
  • When it comes to research into the treatment of hematologic cancers, City of Hope scientists stand out.

  • Patients with HIV-associated lymphoma may soon have increased access to the current standard of care for some non-HIV infected patients – autologous stem cell transplants.

  • The holidays can create an overwhelming urge to give to people in need — especially to sick children and families spending the holidays in a hospital room. That’s a good thing.

  • Cancer has a way of “talking” to the immune system and corrupting it to work on its own behalf instead of defending the body. Blocking this communication would allow the immune system to see cancer cells for what they are – something to be fought off – and stop them from growing. A breakthrough Scientists [R...
