LOS ANGELES — City of Hope, a world-renowned, National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, announced today that it will open its largest clinical network site to date on Feb. 7. The new facility is one of more than 35 locations that are part of City of Hope’s clinical network in Southern California.
The 32,500-square-foot, two-story building at 320 West 6th St. in Corona, California, is nearly three times larger than City of Hope’s former facility in the city. The new location will offer patients enhanced outpatient services as an extension of City of Hope’s national medical center in Los Angeles. 
City of Hope is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center, a title that recognizes centers around the country that meet rigorous standards for transdisciplinary, state-of-the-art research focused on developing new and better approaches to preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. Research conducted at City of Hope has led to the discovery and development of breakthrough cancer medications such as Herceptin, Erbitux, Rituxan and Avastin — all used today to save millions of lives worldwide. City of Hope is ranked among the nation’s “Best Hospitals” in cancer by U.S. News & World Report.
“The expansion of services at this site in Corona is another step in our promise to bring world-class cancer research, care and supportive resources to more patients,” said Vijay Trisal, M.D., City of Hope’s chief medical officer and the Dr. Norman & Melinda Payson Professor in Medicine. “With a hundred-year history of understanding that cancer does not just impact the patient, but it also impacts families and communities, we are bringing City of Hope closer to where people live.”
City of Hope’s physicians and health care staff have access to a variety of leading-edge treatments and devices. With the expanded services offered at the facility, cancer patients living near Corona will be able to take part in groundbreaking clinical trials that offer new medicines and treatments before they are available to the general public. They will also have access to supportive care services, such as social work and physical therapy.
In addition to medical oncology, chemotherapy, radiation oncology, PET (positron emission tomography) imaging and surgical oncology available at the new site, patients at the new Corona location will have access to City of Hope’s world-renowned oncologists, hematologists and cancer subspecialists.
“Corona is honored to have a federally recognized comprehensive cancer treatment center in our city. City of Hope | Corona will be located in the heart of Corona’s Downtown Medical District and will provide state-of-the-art oncology care for people battling cancer,” said City of Corona Mayor Wes Speake. “Through Corona’s strategic geographic location, we’re confident City of Hope will continue to expand their mission to serve more patients, families and communities across Southern California and beyond.”
City of Hope is expanding and has more than 35 locations in its clinical network, which includes a main campus in Los Angeles. City of Hope expects to open a new campus in Orange County, California, this year.
