“Primary visitors” – typically the patient’s closest family or friends – will receive wristbands allowing for 24-hour visitation. Please note that – for the patient's health, safety and well-being – staff may request visitors to leave the patient room and wait in the visitor lounges, located near the elevators on each floor of the hospital.
You may stop at the kiosk at the beginning of the main entrance driveway for directions to the closest self-park lot. Valet parking is available at the main entrance and at City of Hope Helford Clinical Research Hospital.

Using our expertise in numerous diseases, as well as an array of world-class technologies and services, City of Hope cares for patients from prevention through treatment, from screening through rehabilitation and survivorship.
Helford Clinical Research Hospital (inpatient)
With its superior technologies, soaring atriums and dramatic mountain views, City of Hope’s Helford Clinical Research Hospital integrates the best of science and humanity in one state-of-the-art clinical research facility. Here, excellent clinical care and lifesaving research join forces as multidisciplinary teams of medical professionals pool their knowledge to bring promising therapies to patients quickly and safely.
Geri and Richard Brawerman Center for Ambulatory Care (outpatient)
Outpatient services for cancer patients, along with treatment for other chronic illnesses, are provided in the Geri and Richard Brawerman Center for Ambulatory Care. In a facility adjacent to our hospital, we address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the people in our care.
Michael Amini Transfusion Medicine Center
A recognized leader in apheresis, donor matching and marrow transplants, City of Hope’s Michael Amini Transfusion Medicine Center is one of the largest hospital-based donor centers in the country. Here, in a safe and caring environment, families, friends and generous members of the community donate blood and platelets.
Outpatient services at the Amini Center also include a day hospital for bone marrow transplant patients and outpatient surgery.
The Women’s Center integrates plastic surgery, and breast and gynecological cancer services with related services like imaging and genetic counseling. By bringing together one very large multidisciplinary team in one place, we are able to deliver truly coordinated care in a way that is convenient for our patients.
Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center
The Biller Resource Center provides a warm and welcoming space where patients, families and caregivers can access the resources, education and support they need to strengthen and empower themselves, before, during and after treatment.
Hope and Parson Village
In keeping with our mission to care for the whole person – physically and emotionally – City of Hope is one of the few cancer centers in the country to offer patients and their caregivers temporary, on-site housing in a comfortable, home-like setting.
Sometimes cancer cannot be cured, despite the best efforts. The ability to spend one's last days in a comforting home-like setting and to die with dignity is the inspiration behind City of Hope’s Village Hospice. In fully equipped apartments that open out to meditative gardens, patients and their families can be together – quietly, peacefully – close to their medical care team, yet in a place all their own.
Clinical trials – research studies that involve volunteer patients – are a crucial component to developing new, more effective treatments that save lives. Many of today’s standard therapies are based on the results of previous trials, some of which were initiated at City of Hope.
