An NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center

City of Hope Orange County

City of Hope is delivering on its promise to Orange County patients and their families by developing a $1 billion comprehensive cancer campus that will bring highly specialized cancer care, clinical trials, precision medicine and early detection to the community. 
The state-of-the art campus in Irvine is expected to open in 2021 – sooner than initially planned. City of Hope is answering the call to extend its personalized care, leading-edge research and lifesaving treatments to Orange County.

The New Campus

The cancer campus on approximately 11 acres of land will include:
  • Orange County’s only specialty hospital dedicated solely to treating and curing cancer
  • An outpatient cancer center offering diagnostic imaging and screenings, precision medicine and early detection, medical oncology, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgical oncology and ambulatory surgery
  • A clinical research center offering phase I-III clinical trials
  • Personalized supportive care services that include palliative care physicians, psychiatrists, social workers and others who partner with patients and their families to address the many physical and emotional issues that can arise during and after treatment 
  • Access to a wide range of solid tumor and blood cancer specialists dedicated to finding the best treatment for each patient 
City of Hope’s expansion to Orange County is an ambitious initiative, and one that meets an important local need. Nearly 20% of Orange County residents diagnosed with cancer currently leave the area for treatment, often to City of Hope in Duarte, and sometimes to out-of-state facilities.
As an extension of City of Hope in Duarte, the campus will provide access to highly specialized cancer experts and treatment for the most complex cases.
City of Hope’s Orange County network will include additional clinical locations, providing residents with more convenient access to our world-class care, lifesaving research and scientific discoveries. Our first site in Newport Beach is on track to open in late 2019.

Annette Walker, President
City of Hope Orange County

"We’ve spent the last year listening intently to the people in Orange County and identifying how we can contribute to meeting both the present and future community needs. It became evident that we needed to bring our highly specialized treatments as soon as possible. We’re delivering on our promise and opening our doors faster to alleviate the unnecessary hardships on patients and their families. Residents soon will be able to access City of Hope’s latest and most advanced therapies closer to home.”
